Low Tide Beach

Terracotta slip plays a big part in the surface colour of this piece. The terrocotta slip has had a thin wash of engobe over it to lighten it and create an additional layer. The green blue colour around the base is a glossy glaze that has been applied over some speckles of ground up geological sample I found on the beach. The piece not only suggests a beach landscape but actually contains a small part of the beach.
Slab built vessel with incised lines, engobes, underglaze, glaze and oxides . Fired to 1140C
