About Tom Crew
'I want my work to speak to the soul, whether they be wheel thrown hand held objects - or more figurative in form. They share a feeling of sparseness and a balance of simplicity and honesty of their imperfections.
These latest works are the result of following emotions and feelings and less of logic. I was inspired by an object I saw in a window – a thousand-year-old face – it stayed in my mind. A simple face – straightforward – robust – I imagined on the reverse the marks of its creation – Its hidden self – not secrets but its other dimensions, its other selves, what it has witnessed, its different personas, the history of its making, its ambitions, successes and failures. It bears the marks of experiences, of what it’s been through to get here, cracked and repaired, with serenity in its brokenness – its continued vulnerability - its longevity and will to survive – assuring you that everything will be fine – to watch over you – to take care of you.'
Tom Crew was born in Malta 'a long time ago', considers himself a Londoner, lives in Shoreditch and describes himself as a late starter to pottery.
