These pieces are wheel thrown and then once the clay is leather hard they are trimmed and the foot ring of the bowl made. The clay used in this piece is a beautiful textural stoneware clay that fires to a dark toast colour. Once the piece has dried slowly, it is biscuit fired, and then glaze fired.
This design on my Conglomerate is applied using Japanese tissue transfer and hand painted oxide. I use wax resist to build up the layers of pattern. Each cup is unique whilst complimenting the rest of the series
This is a piece that takes many stages and processes to create and the end result showcases the care and love that has gone into its production.
All items are handmade with love over a number of weeks and fired in my studio in Thornlands in South East Queensland. The clay does not like to be rushed and needs time to dry slowly as each step in the making process is completed. I love to wheel thrown and also to hand build, so often use a combination of techniques. The glazes I made are all hand made using tried and tested recipes, as well as my own recipes I have created to get the colours and textures I desired. The majority of finishes I use have a number of glazes layered over each other to create a unique, one off original finish.
Food safe. Dishwasher safe but hand wash recommended.
