In the Church calendar, Ordinary Time is the name given to the periods which fall between Easter and Christmas, and Christmas and Easter. The vestments worn by the clergy display the colour green as a symbol of new life to celebrate a time of growth and renewal. The name comes from the Latin ‘ordinalis’, meaning ordered or regular. Ordinary Time celebrates the cyclical nature of life, the natural rhythm of existence. I have called this range of ceramics ‘Ordinary Time’ as I believe the surfaces celebrate natural progression of the seasons as well as the ordinary common or garden plants and their brave struggle to exist and thrive, often in hostile urban environments.
