2.1b Soda Wood fired St Davids Collection
My practice negotiates the boundaries between the handmade and mass produced, combining modern technologies with the more traditional ceramic techniques of slip casting. Using CAD I have devised a bespoke modular method of constructing segmental moulds for slip cast - an approach which enables me to design parts of great complexity and detail. The innovative method of mould assembly ensures that each piece can be a one-off. I hope the finished form of my objects will prove visually appealing and make the viewer curious about materiality and the processes involved in their creation.
This Parian vessel was subjected to an overload of ash, debris and soda from the wood firing - Situated right at the front of the wood fired kiln. It therefore has the most amazing colouring of purples, pinks, greens and greys.
