Jack Doherty creates elemental vessels that are deeply connected to the sea and the body of work on display at Porthilly Gallery draws upon his reflections as the last in a generation of fishermen.

Jack’s personal travels from the north coast of Ireland to the southern shores of Cornwall have filtered into his soda-fired vessels and his beautiful pots are linked to their function but they are not restricted to their usefulness, these are vessels for drinking, for sharing, for display and for storage.
