Questions askedHow might I make a vessel using my visual concerns about place & environment?
How can I continue to make texture that relates to me? In additional to my pinching technique or instead of?
Continued themesSense of place in particular Delatite River & landscape.
My significant tree, Mountain Eucalyptus.
Starting point is the last work made at the Northcote Residency
This work is now part of the Northcote Pottery collection. Use of slabs and coiling.
Process & Revelations
Texture on slabs created by knuckle, river stones, fingertips and a little pinching rather than entirely formed from coil and pinch.
Making QUICKLY. Responding to CURVES and CONTOURS from slab throwing.
Works which directly expression the tree
Using foliage cotour for rim
Large quickly made slabsSubtle texture (fingertips) combined with deeply impressed texture
No reference to 'literal' tree silhouette
Love the broader surface the the wrap connection
