Demeter at Midnight
Slab-built ceramic vessel based on the female nude form in earthenware. Decorated using paper resist with midnight blue and white clay slips. Glazed inside.
I love this new colour - rich midnight blue fresh from the kiln.
I cut paper for the lines, and like to use scissors for cutting so that the lines are quite crude, not too accurate. The paper "lines" are then pushed onto the pot, and painted over with black clay slip. This is rubbed, to slightly polish it and harden the surface, and then the paper is removed to reveal a white "line".
