PORCELAIN

‘Erosion’ series

 

In this series I explore the visual and tactile marks of time and natural elements such as wind and water. Bleached bones , stones and shells have inspired this body of work.

 

Using resist techniques, Shellac or acrylic medium is painted onto the bone -dry surface and then carefully sponged away. Layers of etched detail are built up this way which, when fired reveal the vessel’s translucency.

 

Each piece is then glazed inside with delicate celadon-like glazes in blues and greens.
