Polished Vessels

About this project

I have become particularly interested in exploring the contrast between the textured external surfaces of the vessels and smooth internal surfaces. After firing, this contrast is accentuated by grinding and polishing any uncarved surfaces. My first collection was monochrome, using either white parian or black stoneware, but I have more recently been experimenting with staining the carved surfaces with coloured slips, oxides or glazes, and then grinding back areas to reveal the porcelain beneath
