Further forays into how to create textured vessels led to be the potters wheel and decided to have a go at throwing bowls and the altering the surface using a combination of coloured slips, sodium silicate and heat to stretch and alter the surfaces. Overall I was really pleased with the results, it isn’t something I had done before using the wheel, and the only thing I had to reference from previous experience was the hand stretched vessels I had made inspired the techniques used by Patricia Shone. Below are images of the vessels from green ware to fully glazed. I used oxides as well as clear glaze on the external surfaces and layered lot sof green tone commercial glazes inside the bowls, the overall aesthetic effect was really good I felt, so I decided that they were interesting enough to take to the Visions of Landscape Exhibition. The blue vessel in the images sold at the show.
