This work has been generously donated by the artist and Hales Gallery, London/New York to support The Studio Voltaire Capital Project. The work was included in Camp Futility, Slee's solo commission at Studio Voltaire in 2012.
Slee's work attempts to challenge every conventional notion in ceramic art, transcending its utilitarian roots, whilst also sidestepping the self-indulgent aspects of the studio tradition that became ubiquitous in the late twentieth century. His works lie in contemporary debate and reference the current positioning of material specialisations within visual creativity.
