Textures, Coils & Dots
I love the feel of the clay between my fingertips. Rolling coils and dots and developing pleasing natural patterns. They grow slowly and take form as platters, bowls and other miscellaneous shapes.
It is satisfying to see these forms take shape in the kiln firing process. Starting from a malleable clay sculpture and finishing with a glazed rigid ceramic.
By adding glazes and glass I can enhance textures and shapes. In particular the use of glass. For me it replicates how the sun settles on raindrops and dew creating beautiful magnified and glistening effects.
