I like the contrast in this piece between the dark bottom edge and the much lighter space, it suggests some changeable weather that creates some dramatic light. The texture of the white space has been achieved by sprinkling course grog into the soft slab before construction. A wash of pink and blue colour has then been added before the thicker white engobe is brushed on. The lines are achieved by incising into the soft clay, additional lines have then been added using underglaze pencils.
