A moon jar hand thrown on the wheel in porcelain. After turning it to refine the final shape, I decorate around the widest part of the moon jar with slip (liquid porcelain), drawing swift freeform marks with a slip trailer. Their abstract pattern resembles a written script but is nevertheless unreadable; the energy in the decoration contrasts with the calm simplicity of this timeless form.
After bisque firing the moon jar is glazed in a pale blue-green celadon for its second firing, which collects in and around the slip decoration. In the kiln this melts into darker pools, which help to define this dynamic element.
Care: hand wash
