Derek Wilson Ceramics

Derek Wilson graduated from the University of Ulster with a Masters in ceramics in 2007.

Derek creates art-based objects for gallerie commissions and functional tableware.

“My work is about capturing the fluidity and quality of a line, an angle, a plane and resonates of constructivist theories and processes. I am concerned with the space the form creates, interior and exterior and the light and shadows the form casts and reveals. Within the work social, personal, historical and aesthetic concerns interact to challenge preconceptions of throwing a form from an amorphous material yet not necessarily seeking the look of the handmade.”
