Description

Share

I love working from my garden studio. This clock is slab built, with sculpted relief details. The cottages were painted with an underglaze and I left some of the features unglazed to give a rustic texture. After an initial kiln firing (bisque) at 900 degrees C, I glazed it with a soft turquoise sea, and a hazy sky. I smashed the Bombay Sapphire bottle and inserted shards of glass which melt then go into thermal shock, creating a gorgeous crackled effect. The clock then went back into the kiln to be re-fired at 1260 degrees C, over another 3 days. 

Inspiration

I love spending time in Cornwall, and these cottages remind me of the delightful harbour in Mevagissey. 

The majority of my work reflects my joy of diving and the deep blue. My pottery captures the mysteries of the sea, I’ve always had a Saltwater Spirit and love living by the coast. I want my art to invite you to touch and explore the forms.

Seize that sense of other-worldliness, a watery feel of sunken treasure.   

Stoneware is extremely resilient. There is a hanging bracket on the back of the mechanism. 

The quartz clock mechanism is silent, and takes an AA battery. I do not ship with the battery installed because the hands will need to be kept motionless during transit. 

Wherever possible I use recycled packaging, it’s friendly to the environment and keeps the costs down. If this is a gift, please let me know and I will enclose a hand-written note with a personal message from you.
