Hand made on the potters wheel from Red Earthenware clay with sgraffito slip decoration. The image is scratched through the upper layer of white clay revealing the red beneath. I am inspired by the work of mid century British painters including Alfred Wallis. Fine dotted slip decoration creates the spray on the waves. Blue and turquoise slips and glazes are freely painted on the surface of this bowl. This pedestal bowl is 21 cm high and 15 cm diameter.
Safe at Sea Pedestal Bowl
I am inspired by the work of mid century British painters including Alfred Wallis although there is a hint of Peter Doig in this work. The image on this work is of a mountain scene drawn from imagination but inspired by visits to Ontario in Canada and to Cader Idris in Wales. This pedestal bowl is 19 cm high and 12.5 cm diameter.
