I’ve a gentle obsession with botanical ceramics, a lot so I’m incorporating palm and floral motifs into my very own work at my native studio. I’m experimenting with totally different strategies, most just lately I used a laser lower palm pressed into clay to create an ornamental tray with an irregular edge and olive glazed end. I like this prototype a lot I’m making extra in a wide range of colours to promote in my native store.
Whereas within the studio I’m studying how one can carve patterns with sgraffito, use kiln secure overlays, and cutouts to brighten with clay leaves and flowers. Quickly I’ll begin working towards hand portray strategies. I’m working with denser earthenware and lightweight clay our bodies however my hope is to create utilizing porcelain too.
Whereas it’s essential to have purposeful plates and bowls for each day eating, it’s so beautiful to have fairly platters or vessels for serving too. Botanical motifs all the time convey me pleasure, beneath are a couple of favorites.
