High Tide stem vase
Thrown on my traditional Leach kick wheel using white stoneware clay from the clifftop quarry at St Agnes, a few miles up the north Cornish coast from my studio. A sea scene has been created by carving through the wet clay to give the illusion of waves. A favourite pebble from Newlyn beach has been used to smooth the ‘sky’ area and provides feint lines for the oxide and glaze to accentuate. Fired in an electric kiln. My maker’s mark is stamped on the base. Measuring 11.5cm tall x 8cm wide x 2.5cm neck diameter.
