Angell works primarily with ceramics, producing sculptural tableaux referencing hobbyist cultures, naturalistic forms, and the underground hand built ceramics of Britain from the 1970s and 80s. His work for Studio_Leigh extends a desire for the rehabilitation of British craft whilst also reflecting the artist’s interest in faux talismanic vessels. “Planchette” is a clinker-built pleasure boat which is also interchangeable as a tomb for a domestic cat. It features a working aluminium anchor which is a cast of the artist’s hand gripping a bunch of hammers. “Planchette” (French for little plank) refers to the boat-shaped tool used for automatic writing and for reading a ouija board. The boat is fully water-worthy.
