Care Instructions:

Wash as ceramic. Not suitable for the dishwasher due to fragile "gills".


The series of “gilled” forms started by looking at organic forms in nature, specifically hidden or less visible forms. This might be something seen under the microscope or in the undergrowth. Gill-like growths are everywhere and they are beautiful! I wanted to capture this in my art. I also want to give the pieces a sense of movement, as if they might scuttle off across the sea floor. This elliptical shape is particularly pleasing with the gills splaying out as they echo the form. The scalloped edge lends added interest and the satin matte glaze adds emphasis to the form. As well as being a visual delight, it is intriguing to hold and explore with the hands, and provides a variety of different viewpoints. It is a form I enjoy exploring and developing with variations.
