This richly coloured oval vessel began its life on my potter’s wheel.
- Glossy vessel – with cascades of rich blues & whites over a dark base
- Height: 23 cm
- Method: thrown in 2 parts
- Made of white Earthstone professional stoneware clay + black slip + Combination of rutile glazes
Much of my work starts on the potter’s wheel. I enjoy the tactile soft flowing nature of the clay and throwing rings, and how they capture the essence of fluidity and motion.
This vessel was thrown in 2 parts, requiring careful measurement to ensure a good fit. I like to pay special attention to the rims of my vessels, to add to the sense of energy and life. Additional clay was added to create a band of texture. Once fully formed, I gently paddled the creation into an oval shape.
