dry run 2011

These ceramic pieces are based on the japanese art-form, Origami. The pieces are created using porcelain paper clay slip. The slip is painted in layers on to the original paper forms, then fired to create these delicate, paper-like forms. This piece, ‘Tsuru’ shows the paper crane’s folding process, through it’s two-dimensional to three-dimensional states. These photographs were taken by photographer Josh Cockroft at BA (Hons) Glass and Ceramics ‘Dry Run’ exhibition 2011. The exhibition was a great success and also led me to sell some of my pieces.
