Description

Share

I love working from my garden studio. I threw this pod on my potter’s wheel and when it started drying I neatened the base by using a chuck (a plaster form) to nestle the pot while I trimmed the style. I sculpted a hook for hanging then carved and manipulated the clay to sculpt the openings. The form was high fired (bisque) for 3 days at 900 degrees C, then I painted a dark indigo glaze outside and contrasting turquoise glaze inside. The pod went back into the kiln to be re-fired at 1270 degrees C, over another 3 days. 

Inspiration

I’ve been sketching coral pods recently and found one which looked like a mini lantern. My first thought was to make a pod which hangs and I created this one to be multi-functional. 

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.

This item is foodsafe.

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.
