From one firing to another, it is possible to detect the constant metamorphosis of Tony Laverick’s work. He is constantly expanding his limits, pushing boundaries and taking risks that are necessary for growth. In his view, it is the willingness to take risks and bear the consequences that distinguishes the artist from the craftsman.
Laverick strives to create spatial drama in his work; an intricate composition of colour, shape, texture and form which the viewer feels compelled to touch, hold and rotate, revealing complex relationships.
Laverick says of his ceramics: ‘I hope that my work has an effect on people which is more akin to a feeling and cannot always be put into words.’
