This richly coloured oval vessel began its life on my potter’s wheel.

 

Description

  • 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.
