Sculptural Vessel, Stoneware
Oxide enriched slips and white crystalline glaze that react to create unique, beautiful patterning and texture on the exterior and interior surfaces of the vessel….
soft clay is torn, then pressed into moulds, once firm, the clay is broken into shards and used to create fragmented forms. As the pieces are constructed ceramic oxides are embedded into the crevasses and surface of the clay. Later, when the work is fired and the heat-work of the kiln turns the clay to stone, these oxides are drawn to the surface, reacting with glaze to create movement and texture that remains permanently frozen on the surface of the vessel.
