Title
Sunset Over the City
Dimensions
140 (w) x 250 (h) x 65 (d)
Comment
I created "Sunset Over the City" as an abstract form. I have used my hands as opposed to a slab roller to construct an uneven dimensional slab vessel as I wanted to achieve a relaxed, uneven, softer surface to my form. I used my finger/knife to create uneven seams which I highlighted by applying then wiping back black underglaze to give a shadow effect to the seam line. An abstract, textured surface was achieved by applying multiple layers of white slip and coloured underglazes, wiping back and re-applying to achieve texture. I have used a needle tool to make line marks then applied black underglaze to highlight. I have used a textured roller to thinly roll clay cutouts to resemble buildings and create dimension. The buildings have been glazed with black underglaze with a clear gloss glaze overtop. The blue gloss glaze is Abbots 'Chun Blue'.
