‘Cluster Form’


Describing his work, Michael Moore says: ‘Since 2017, I have rethought my approach to making ceramics. I now explore defined boundaries, examine where things intersect, overlap and interconnect. This has led to forms that seek to pull things together, from constructed sources, maps, grids, fragments, places, and the routes connecting them.’
