– cobalt dots on tiny pots
Ceramics and wheel throwing are recent but extreme fascinations! I could have spent four years just studying glazes, clay bodies, and the history of formal archetypes… Alas, I am thrilled to be able to explore form and decoration in a really direct and fulfilling way, but through my relation to the making of the objects but also through their lives with other users.
This collection of teacups and bud vases play with the delicate handmade quality of porcelain and the industrial, repeating pattern of polka dot decals. I made the decals using a silkscreen process. Exhausting the possibilities of these three simple patterns is an ongoing project.
