'We only print in blood-red'


Saltaire Festival 2106 - Sally Barker created these ceramic pieces, each made from individual pieces of clay squeezed and pinched to capture the fingerprints and then glazed blood-red. They explore 'the mark we make and our complex and often difficult relationship with the world, on an environmental and psychological level, using the intimate to reflect a global perspective'.

They seemed to ooze out of the wall like fungus or maybe wasps' nests. I found them both repellent and fascinating in equal measure.
