The Spheroid Collection
A collection exploring spherical forms, some of which are elongated (prolate) and others are flattened (oblate) where the sgraffito lines disappear into the curved openings.
Made from Superwhite stoneware clay using a range of making processes; hand slab building, slump moulding and throwing on the wheel, and featuring my signature sgraffito surface finish. The clay is painted with layers of grey slip (liquid clay) and then burnished. Deeply etched sgraffito lines expose the white clay beneath the slip and are highlighted with a transparent, glossy glaze to contrast with the matte grey surface.
