Porcelain. Finally.Posted: March 7, 2013
My first experiments in porcelain. These forms have been inspired by the Ikea paper light itself, I have dismantled one by taking out the coiled wooden support. It still has a spherical shape, but this can be manipulated to created more interesting deflated forms. I have recreated these forms using balloons, newspaper and tissue paper.
The porcelain slip is much thicker than the earthenware I have been using previously so I have only dipped the balloons once. They were also harder to coat as the porcelain retains a memory so wants to return to a lump like state. I have more to “dip” ready for firing next week.
