Porcelain bowls

About this project

Wheel thrown porcelain bowls, using relief decoration to enhance the bowl form and to react with the glaze. The relief surface is created by cutting into the clay and by applying slip. My Ocean Blue glaze responds to the raised surfaces and cut away strips through subtle and appealing colour variations.
