Ceramic Piece 17cm x 19.5cm. Frame dimensions 26cm x 29cm x 3.5cm
I wanted to get the feel of open sky, transparent water and ancient dark rocks across in this piece of work without giving an over literal representation of a landscape. The dark section was created using some found rock that I ground up and embedded into the surface. The turquoise section has a crazed engobe under a watery turquoise glaze.
Slab built wall piece in a white wooden frame. There is a small gap between the ceramic piece and the backboard of the frame, this elevates the ceramic pieces and gives it the appearance of floating in the wooden frame. Fired to 1140C
