Description

Double walled vessel which has been scored and deformed to create pillow like shapes in the surface.
Glazed on top with a pale green colour. The main body was painted along the creases in the clay with a glaze. This subsequently reacted with the transparent glaze applied over it thus creating lines and running patterns in white, light blue and brown hues which change with the light. The finished surface also has a crackle or crazed appearance to it. Not designed with any specific purpose but looks visually stunning on a shelf.

Thrown in one piece on the pottery wheel these vessels start life upside down where two walls are pulled up and joined together leaving an empty void in between similar to how a thermos flask looks. This is then manipulated to create the form shown. Further trimming refines the shape. It is then bisque fired, glazed and then fired up to 1280'C.

Size: 6cm tall, 9.5cm wide

The piece has a small pin hole in the base. This allowed air to escape during the drying and firing processes to stop the piece exploding.

Inspiration

The double walled vessels came from experimenting with closed forms such as salt pigs. With air trapped in the hollow form you can manipulate the clay to create unusual shapes and bulkier forms.
