Hand altered porcelain bowl

Posted By absicse 503 days ago on Pottery

Slipcast and hand altered, the lobed top portion of the bowl is sculpted to accentuate the view of the interior. This bowl comfortably holds a meal and sits at 3 inches tall and 6 inches wide. I work with a high fire porcelain clay body that I then slipcast in plaster molds that I have made from my original thrown prototypes. Accentuating the thixatropic nature of my casting slip, I hand alter the tops of each piece as a way to bring a personal hand to the practice of mass production. Ornamentation can be light or dense, and usually floral in my work. The pieces are lightweight and comfortable to handle.
