Inspired by mark making and painting, Barry takes a relaxed and direct approach to making vessels. He aims to create a sense of drama that is fresh and exciting, exploring vibrant colour compositions and exploiting the gestural qualities of fluid brush marks and soft clay.

Most of his work is made with red earthenware clay and is usually wheel thrown and altered, or constructed from soft slabs and then painted with coloured slips, stains, oxides and glaze.

In addition to creating his own work, Barry also works as a studio assistant to Edmund de Waal. Barry's work can be seen at Kellie Miller Arts from September 2015
