Orange & turquoise fancy fish sgraffito vessel


Inspiration for this piece was taken from a fan tail fancy gold fish. These unique and beautiful fish have been bred in China for hundreds of years and have become popular around the world.

This piece is part of a new collection exploring colour backgrounds to my sgraffito. The background has been created using my turquoise slip and has been applied by hand adding an extra process to my decoration.

Every unique design created starts life as a detailed line drawing. Each piece has been thrown on the wheel, left to slightly dry and then goes through many different processes to create my intricate images onto the damp clay surface.

My decoration is a combination of painting with clay slips, carving and using sgraffito to draw the delicate lines onto each design. This takes many hours of work and no two pieces will ever look the same.

Once completed these are left to dry for a few weeks and fired twice in an electric kiln during which I have selectively glazed the main themes leaving the rest of the decoration matt.

The decoration continues across the base which is a very unusual and distinctive feature of my ceramic art.

This piece measures 11.5cm high / 5.5cm wide / foot 2.5cm / 200 grams
Only one available
