Slab plate 8" x 7.25"
Like a hostile crowd surrounding a vulnerable family of four, the decoration resembles an inquisition. It didn’t start that way, it started as an exploration of pattern created by slip clay blobs, but the gliding flow of moving slip caused by the jiggle I gave the slab created a story, a mood.
The ballet of the pattern is accented by the mystery of the firing, extra ornament is provided by a scattering of melted ember, like rose petals on a path. Layer upon layer of markings, and oceans glazed deep, complete this marvelous slab.
