Black Urchin Vessel - Black Dots
Wheel thrown vessel in black stoneware clay with hand-built additions (spikes) and multiple layers of coloured slip, fired to Cone 6
This series of vessels explore the intricate and detailed patterns and textures of sea urchins and sea eggs. Each piece is hand thrown on the potter’s wheel or hand-built using slabs of clay and then adorned with hand built additions (spikes) and multiple layered dots using coloured slip. This process requires a lot of time and patience. Each piece is one of a kind and has its own unique, intricate pattern.
