This superb spotted bowl has a great range of colour and pattern on the inside and outside. Each piece is unique and unrepeatable. Beautiful haloed spots on the inside, which when held up to the light reveal their translucence.
Often my work is driven by the materials and processes. Working with soluble metallic salts has been an ongoing investigation in my arts practice. Due to their unpredictable behaviour, they are not commonly used in studio ceramics. Dissolved metallic salts are applied to the porous surface creating unique patterns on both surfaces. My concern is about the relationship between these surfaces, evidenced through the migration of colour and pattern. Applied acids and resists create crisp and diffuse patterns, defined by moisture and saturation.
