Handmade from black stoneware clay, this little shallow tray/dish features folded edges with corner detailing and is perfect to keep your little jewellery pieces handy. I decorated the surface with abstract dots and lines in pink, white and lemon, and then incised some curvy motifs into the pink background stripe before firing to 1185 degrees C in my kiln. Underneath is my potters’ mark of a swallow in flight. It’s just 7.5 x 5 cms, so will fit easily into your life! The silver ring shown in one of the images is beautifully made by Helen Burgess, another Folksy maker. As the surface of the black stoneware is natural unglazed matt finish clay, it is not suitable for food use.
The collection is the result of a long period of experimentation with black stoneware clay. My aim is to create pieces that reflect the inherent qualities of the clay itself, and to form and decorate using the minimum of tools, so that the finished piece can reflect the material and the maker.
I use just my hands to shape each piece from a flattened sheet of clay, then apply slip (liquid clay) decorative designs with a natural sponge. The motifs are influenced by textile designs and artwork from the early 20th century.
While there are recurring shapes, motifs and colours in my work, each piece is entirely unique in its form and decoration. The work is fired to 1185 degrees Celsius in an electric kiln over a period of 12 hours. Pieces bear my maker’s mark of a swallow impressed into the base.
