Raku Iridescent Fish in a Frame. These fishes are Raku fired which gives them a lovely fishy iridescent lustre. They are presented in a box frame on a bed of Porthcurno sand. This is the last one left. Please note that each fish is individual and may vary slightly from the one in the photograph. All my fish are handmade and totally unique. They are made with stoneware clay. They look great on the wall in a bathroom or kitchen. I will be making some more soon due to popular demand! If you would like to see my other dishes and sculptures please go to www.clayalchemy.co.uk. All my ceramic work is handmade, not thrown and contains brass lead glaze or is raku or smoke fired. x
I am also a ceramicist and feel Folksy is a good platform to show and sell some of my work. I have been using a variety of handbuilding techniques with clay since 2004. My influences and sources of inspiration mainly derive from medieval history and Arthurian legends.
For the past few years I have been using brass lustre glazes on earthenware.
I like the rich effect of the brass glaze when combined with glass and have used this technique on my series of dishes and platters.
As these glazes are lead based it is my attempt at a kind of Alchemy. When I see the finished result of the metallic glaze it feels like a change from base metal into gold has occurred. Working with clay feels like a magical process; sculpting, burnishing and firing. The end result can never really be predicted only guided. It makes you let go and leave the results to chance and relinquish control to the elements . It's Alchemy !
