Object Detail


Description
Stratton is known for his quirky sculptural ceramics, especially teapots, where each piece can take over a month to complete. His final compositions are draw from his immediate environment: abstracted representations of his daily life as both an artist and a stay-at-home father. Blending his insights on everyday experience with European ceramic histories and Modernist art movements, Stratton asks us to consider links between past and present.
“Internationally, ceramics has played a key role to unlocking human history, helping us to date our growth via fragments of clay. “ “I am an historian. I bring to life techniques of the past”
Modernist movements such as Cubism, Constructivism and Brutalism, have influenced his practice since attending an artist residency in Denmark in 2016.
