21.28. Re-Cycled Agate Pot. ‘Rebirth’.

What to do with left over clay? Mixing the 3 colours can create unique and interesting patterns. The pot is made from coils made from left over clay and then scraped to reveal the design. The uncertainly of the final result is both liberating and often times pleasantly surprising.

Height 26cm. Diameter 18cm.

Price: £50.00

 

 

20.142. Black and White Nerikomi Bowl. ‘Chequer Board’

This was definitely a labour of love as assembling the linear black and white lines into a chequered board effect needed a fair amount of control on my part. No way could the clay be spontaneous and have a mind of its own.  The patterning complimented the shape of the bowl and I was pleased with the result.

Height 11cm. Width 22cm. Depth 20cm.

19.140. Nerikomi Tapas Bowl. ‘Square Up!’

Creating the square patterns for this bowl was fun and I wanted to make a statement so decided to create a centre motif that  dwarfed the surrounding patterns. The patterns were made by layering the coloured clay and then extruding them through a square disk. The square tube is then cut and the pieces are assembled to create the pattern.

21.119. Black and White Nerikomi Bowl. ‘Round and Round We Go!’

A black and white circular patterned bowl with a black foot. The circular design takes time to create as the patterns have to be rolled rather like a swiss roll and then extruded. They are then cut and laid out and rolled flat. Trying to create a uniform pattern with wayward clay can be a real challenge.

21.25. Red, White and Black Trapezium Pot. ‘Swirls’

Moving away from more ‘curvy’ pots I have been experimenting with angular shapes and seeing how the  more spontaneous swirls of the agate patterns compliment the rigid form. The addition of a spiral neck also joins in the challenge.

Height 20cm. Width 11cm. Depth 11cm.

21.20. Square Agate Pot. ‘Flowing’.

The black, white and red clay are merged together to create a swirl of flowing colour. This is set within a square frame and  a black spiral neck is added to create contrast to the sharp sides of the shape.

Height 17cm. Width 9cm. Depth 10cm.
