📖 THE PROCESS
Organic objects and underwater life inspire me. I enjoy bringing the extreme texture and movement found underneath the sea to the surface of my ceramic artwork. Each treasure looks as if it has been taken from the sea.
This handmade pottery starts as a single ball of clay, and a tall vase form is formed by hand. Texture is added and the foot is created. Next dozens of barnacles are meticulously handmade and attached to the piece, inspired by underwater life and is ready to #admire from every angle. Finishing touches are added with shells attached to the face of the piece. After drying, the piece was carefully loaded into the kiln and was bisque fired, then iron oxides and glazes are applied and layered and the piece is fired in the kiln for a second time in the kiln to transform into a final work of art.
