The pattern for this cookie mould is that of a lotus plant.
The Buddhist believes that the lotus is the purest of plant, it shoot up from the muddy pond but yet it has the ability to keep any dirt from attaching.

“In the beginning, all is without form and void.  Subsequent to collision, interaction and convergence, order is created; form and cognition appeared.  That’s how our story begins.

Seven individuals; seven entangled minds converged through clay and expressed in one exhibition.

Akin to many urbanites, we live with heavy workloads and pressure in everyday life.  Pottery cleanses our souls; mends cracks of regrets left behind as we grow up; clears tangled thoughts; awakens the seed of creativity buried deep within us.  It nourishes our lives.”

Plate

A large plate is perfect for dinner parties, salads, pasta, etc instantly looks mouth watering even when they are simply tossed into the container.

A press mould oval shape dish with black underglaze drawing and a top clear glaze.
Iron oxide wash on the outside of the plate.
The groggy clay body  which enhance interesting texture after scrapping when the clay body is dry.

For the Something Old Something New joint event, a bottle with lid  in real gold and blue barium glaze finish (not food safe).  Wheel thrown in one piece, lid is then cut from the body.  Gold is applied after the stoneware firing,  refire to a lower temperature of 750 C.

This dream like bottle made me think of Calvino’s Invisible City.

The joint venture with Soil and Cobo is still on till the end of the month, if you are interested in contemporary pottery come and take a look!

For me, these candle shades are like a father and son having a conversation with each other.

These candle shades are unglazed white stoneware, wheel thrown and then distorted, they are then carefully hand carved to get the openings for light.
