08 May Spiral Ceramic Vessels
Series started in (September 2015) with sketches of a wood screw. Some of the pieces are about finding a balance between the underlying form and the “teeth” of the spiral. Both parts of the vessel’s shape are equally important to the whole, to bring balance between the two I experimented with having a single spiral moving on top of itself, two separate spirals moving on top of each other, and up to four or five spirals moving along the surface of the vessel. I was also exploring what would happen as I changed the thickness of the spiral tracks, sometimes keeping it even all through the vessel, other times allowing it to become narrower as it approached the top.
