thrown and altered porcelain, black slip, 20k gold china paint
The Upcycle series of vessels are made with pieces of thrown porcelain leftover from building larger sculptures. It is a bit like putting together the pieces of a puzzle. I have to work with the torque inherent in the thrown pieces when building these works. I am always pleased when they come through the process without cracks.
