    Since the 1960s, Ken Price’s deliberate disassociation with the conventions of his chosen material have resulted in a consistently ambitious exploration of form and surface that is more closely allied to sculpture and painting than ceramics. His most recent body of work, the free-form amorphous ‘blobs’, create an uneasy tension that on the one hand seem to celebrate the organic plasticity of the clay while rejoicing in the synthetic artificiality of the applied layers of paint that make up the surface.
