Hand thrown vessel coated with snowflake glaze over a rich iron stoneware clay. Fired up to 1290 degrees in a reduction atmosphere. During this process the colours and texture of the clay and glaze change to produce these crackled soft icy tones.
About the Artist:
Hampstead-based ceramicist Jennifer Morris discovered her love of clay during a pre foundation course in 2008. It tapped into a freedom of creativity which she found liberating. She hand builds and throws objects that can easily be inserted into daily life and provide both joy and a function. Jennifer loves the surprises that are intrinsic to the ceramic practice especially Raku and Reduction firing. "You can never make the same exact piece twice and therein lies the magic.”
