This is the first vase I created combining wheel thrown components with slab building. My project has been based around the idea of foraging and a desire to impact the owners awareness of the earth around us by encouraging them to pick their own flowers/weeds/herbs🌿 and arrange them in the vessel. It is not designed to be a centre piece, but something to sit on the windowsill or countertop and inspire those seeing it to fill it with local ingredients that can be picked walking along the river. I have included some of my basic landscape drawings as I am inspired by the undulating hills and valleys surrounding Cardiff and found it important to let these forms influence my own.
This piece is an example of naked raku, something I'll discuss more in another post 🌞
