Morag MacInnes

Morag MacInnes makes sculptural clay work using a variety of techniques. MacInnes lived in Milton Keynes for 16 years, teaching art and participating in the Silbury Group. MacInnes is interested in exploring themes that elicit resonance and emotional responses. The artist has always been fascinated by myths, archetypes and symbolic imagery that reoccurs across time and space. Ancient cultures form a constant influence. The pieces included in MK Calling are a loosely nautical body of work reflecting the artist’s interest in how we move in a man-made way in water. They have been make with Doble’s clay, from Cornwall, slipped and smoke fired in a brick kiln. The intense smoke firing processes that are somewhat uncontrollable echo the peculiar primeval character of the pieces.
