'As an alternative to landscape I have also often used still life as subject. The forms that I use are simple, a few well-known jugs, mugs and beakers on a table. Their familiar contours set up a resonance with each other and they are instantly familiar by their outline.' (Tom Cross, 'Helford: A River and Some Landscapes', Halsgrove, 2005, p.92.)
