Dimensions: H 31/2" x W 5"
Materials: Low-fire earthenware Slip cast wax-resist design
My desire is to have my work find a use in the everyday
life of the user. I use simple forms, which I make by slip-casting,
I then apply my graphic designs so that they work with the forms
in a harmonious collaboration. When painting the surfaces of the
work,either by direct handpainting or a process of layering with
wax- resist I find that the shapes dictate how the pattern moves
on a piece. I find this most exicting because each piece has its
own way of interpreting what is applied to the surface. Each shape
is a challenge in finding the right combination in the pattern
that will work with the shape.
