Thrown ceramic form, graffito decoration
14 (W) x 0.5 (D) cms
Exploring and celebrating her fascination with the natural world through ceramic forms and intricate sgraffito drawings.
Tiffany's creative process for every piece begins with a series of detailed drawings. Using a white stoneware she throws her individual and elegant forms. Once partially dry they are gently coaxed and manipulated introducing an organic feel.
Selected clay slips are applied and blended setting the background hue for each design. Using Sgraffito she draws onto the clay surface cutting away by hand the top layer of slip revealing the white body underneath. Contrasting colours are added and details drawn onto the decoration completing each intricate design. Pieces are selectively glazed after the bisque emphasising the main themes then fired in an electric kiln to 1180.
