Myer Halliday is a designer maker, specialising in ceramics and based outside Edinburgh. He graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2009.
For a while now I’ve been interested in the ways in which, through accumulation or accretion, individual lines or marks add together to create a repetitive pattern which is greater than the sum of the individual lines. Lines are drawn in parallel or crossed or laid over each other, often in a mechanistic, predetermined manner. The way in which the incidental marks (e.g. throwing rings) made in the process of making the piece, interact with the drawn pattern is also of interest and adds a further dimension to the decoration.
Ceramic ware is made from slip-cast parian, decorated by drawing directly onto the work with hand applied transfers or with body stains and glazes.
