WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

The semester is drawing dangerously close to its end, and I have to work out what I’m on about.

There’s something interesting about bodies - several items that look like they belong together - or maybe the confusion of there being an odd one out, or a collection that do not seem to fit yet they are placed within close proximity. My aim this semester manifested into a want to explore the material of clay, see what it could do, and how it or the objects are interpreted depending on surface and shapes. I chose to make cups ebcause they are something you very much wish to put in your hands and press to your lip.
Extending this to vessels in general seems like a natural progression.

I am seeking direct responses to looking at or feeling these vessels, no metaphors or storytelling.

stacked-up bowl shapes.. remind me of some kind of growth or something? I wanted to try to leave my touch quite heavily on something hand-made.

Some tea bowls that I tested white and green glazes on. This green came out beautifully, matte and a bit speckled. The white is beautifully milky with some little discoloured specks throughout. Happy with these tests!
