Description

Share

I love working from my garden studio. I threw this stoneware mug on my potter’s wheel and when it was leather-hard I turned the base to give it a neat finish. I moulded the handle under running water (pulled it) and then sculpted the starfish, ready to be attached on the body just below the rim. I carved a seaweed inspired design around the handle. After an initial kiln firing (bisque) at 900 degrees C, turquoise glaze was painted in a watery effect around the mug, but the starfish was left as raw clay which gives it the biscuit effect. The mug then went back into the kiln to be re-fired at 1270 degrees C, over another 3 days. 

Inspiration

Starfish are such adorable sea creatures, it’s always so exciting to find one in rock pools or along the shore. I love the idea of one wanting to join you every day. 

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 and watertight.

This piece 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.
