Works in Progress©

April 22, 2013

Another late night trying to squeeze in time on my days off applying the silk screen print transfers to my newly turned vessels from last week at Tafe. I have started Refined Wheel Throwing and Surface Decoration this semester. I have started to throw a few pieces and get a feel for a shape that will over time develop into work that will become recognizable as my own.

I am currently researching ceramic artists who alter the wheel thrown vessel, experimenting with surface decoration and glaze techniques.

Throughout the second semester I will be undertaking full time study in Ceramics and Printmaking, developing refined wheel throwing techniques and surface decoration.

Applying the silk screen print transfers with Red Iron Oxide has led me to

discover glaze techniques and surface decoration of artists such as

Justin Rothshank who utilises traditional silk screen prints and custom decal prints, developing a visual layering of diverse techniques in form and surface decoration.

Grayson Perry’s use of rich colours and collage images creates vibrant and exciting surface decoration, engaging the vessel as body of work.

The muted oxide hues in the still life ceramics of Gwynn Hansen Piggott and landscape inspired works of  Kirsten Coelho’s synonymous banded colours of iron oxide and matt white glaze are inspirational and an area of which I am excited to explore.
