Porcelain alters its composition during exposure to high temperature turning soft and buttery in the kiln. Ordinarily this is a complication as it can create unpredictable outcomes. Anemone uses this distortion as an element of design.
The pieces on this page were encouraged to shift and warp in the kiln by being tilted with one end fired higher than the other in the hope that the clay might register some changes from the heat.
I called this series anemone,
the idea based on the motion of the tides influencing the shape of sea life, underwater moments frozen in time. The pieces are 25cm tall.
