Louise Fulton, Cauldron 2010
I could see a driver stopped on Eltham road on a small bridge in front of an animal. As I slowed down to pass, I realised it was a very large freshwater crayfish that he was guiding back into the creek. It was waving its claws. The driver was risking his life for something he could buy at the local fish and chip shop.
This vessel 'Cauldron' has a deep black and green matt glaze inside. The sprigs on the side are based on Chinese thunder and fire symbols. The vessel is part on our 'Swallowing clouds' exhibition.
