This small rocking bowl has even blue colour and white spot all over pattern. The interior is pale matt blue unglazed.
I chose the rocking form as the surface pattern is totally uninterrupted and to introduce a element of movement. 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.
