Falmouth inspired Rock Pots

About this project

After visiting the coastal path in Falmouth I developed a series of Vessels with relief textures drawings that enhance the hand coiled vessels below. The contrast of the white stones against the black rocks inspired me to recreate a range of drawings in clay that mimicked the rhythmic textured surface. The Vulcan clay creates a volcanic surface and the added addition of porcelain slip responded to the glazes with a high gloss finish.
