contour beakers

Following on from earlier experiments trying to represent wire and contour lines on slip-cast beakers, I produced a small set carrying forward the more abstracted line idea. The outside is sponged with black slip with incised lines, the inside in sponged with pale turquoise slip. All will be covered in clear glaze.

Some of the random lines of each beaker line up nicely with their neighbours on this set so forming a continuous line across all four.

I love sponging on slip, especially on to slip-cast forms. It is a really old and rustic technique that adds texture while softens and de-industrializes the sometimes cold and uniform slip-casts.
