Joyful Series II (2009)

A delightful detour from the previous Joyful Series. Working with the same processes, I chose a iron-speckled clay body and fired the work in a reduction kiln. This dulled the colours and created a more rustic, primative look. The decoration sinks deeply into the clay body, the cloudy clear glaze softening the colours to become an integral part of the piece with a quiet strength.

These pieces are small and precious but hold great weight within themselves. They are more sombre and serious than the colourful quirkiness of the previous series and hold both a sadness and a wisdom that I am drawn to. I particularly enjoy holding these pieces in my hands and they ground me.
