I am really missing working with clay! There is something so therapeutic about sitting and working with a lump of clay. I don't work on a wheel but prefer to hand build. When making a bowl I usually start with a small ball of clay and pinch a small bowl first. I then roll coils and add these onto the small pinched bowl until I have the size and shape bowl I want.
I have been inspired by lace and how beautiful and delicate it is. I drew a very simple daisy shape onto the clay and then cut out the petal shapes through the clay to create the "lace" effect. I wanted it to be simple so I just painted the flower white using underglaze and left the bowl the natural clay colour.
It is a lovely size bowl for salads or as a fruit bowl. I want to make a larger one and also a platter. Clay is such fun! I will post pictures of my other clay work soon.
