Swimming angelfish & weed ceramic sgraffito vessel
This ceramic vessel has been thrown on the wheel using a very white stoneware clay and while it’s still damp coloured clay slips have been applied to the surface.
I have then taken a sharp tool and drawn the outline of the angelfish and flowing weeds and carved back the clay surface creating a lovely 3D effect.
The decoration on the fish has been drawn on using a technique called sgraffito with extra colours being added to highlight the markings on the angelfish bodies. Only the fish have been glazed giving each one a lovely shimmer.
This form has been decorated across the base so the design is allowed to continue around and over the surface. The neck of this piece is bent over and almost closed just leaving a tiny opening. Each piece I create is unique and takes many hours to complete by hand.
This piece measures 31cm high / 16cm wide / foot 6.5cm
