I’ve a light 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 completely different methods, most not too long ago I used a laser reduce 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 quite a lot of colours to promote in my native store.
Whereas within the studio I’m studying methods to carve patterns with sgraffito, use kiln protected overlays, and cutouts to brighten with clay leaves and flowers. Quickly I’ll begin training hand portray methods. 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 practical plates and bowls for day by day eating, it’s so beautiful to have fairly platters or vessels for serving too. Botanical motifs all the time convey me pleasure, under are just a few favorites.
