After planing, cutting, and assembling larger slab-build pieces, I am often left with cut-offs of slabs. In past pieces, I would build abstract shapes from the ground up and allow whatever shape to develop. In this case, I was working with a teacher-directed prompt of making accretion pieces, combined with the desire to make a heavily textured bowl.

I attached the terracotta clay when it was a wet-leather-hard with a little slip and scoring. Then let dry slowly under plastic until leather hard. With a sharp carving tool, I carved away the excess slip from the seams. With a damp sponge, I smoothed all the rough edges. Then let it dry slowly to a bone dry state, before bisquing. I dipped the whole thing into a dark-green, satin glaze and electric fired to Cone 6.

Dimensions: H – 7cm x W – 26cm x D – 20cm Available to own.
