Taking a coil for a walk
In my practice I mainly use the prehistoric method of coiling, which is deeply rooted in the history of craft and ceramics. I chooses to use this method exposing the coil and revealing the process often hidden in most ceramic works.
When I am making a piece of work, I know where I want to start and have a notional idea of how it may look. Frequently this method takes me on a material and narrative journey. As I progress I make decisions about how to shape the final form, which is often very different to the initial idea. The form evolves and I lets serendipity happen in the search for a new structural complexity. I like to think that I am ‘taking a coil for a walk’, an expression I borrows from Paul Klee’s ‘taking a line for a walk’.

Eusebio Sanchez is a Spanish born artist based in Brighton. He studied History of Art in the University of Malaga and felt these studies did not fulfil his creative desire to learn craft skills and make objects. After a few years working in Madrid, he moved to the UK and decided to study an Art Foundation course at Brighton and Hove City College. This was a liberating experience for him and he knew this was absolutely the career path that he wanted to pursue.
This led him to study a BA (hons) in 3D Design and Craft at University of Brighton. During this time he gained a broad range of skills in wood, metal, polymers and ceramics. He specialised in ceramics and particularly drawn to the potential of the material; how it can be manipulated through mould making and glazes/surface finishes. He is currently finalising an MA at the Royal College of Art in Ceramics and Glass.
