Asemic, ceramic

Ceramic/Asemic

I have been experimenting with glazes and oxides recently. I rolled some tiles in krank clay just explore some finishes…

These are simply white glaze with black oxide brushed on over the top.

There is a lovely effect that can be seen on the image above, where the oxide has been drawn from the brush and created some areas of saturation at the top, and then a real textural effect as the oxides ‘thin out’ towards the end of the stroke.

I was also testing some imprints too. Inspired by the chinese tradition of the ‘chop’  I decided to see if I could achieve a similar effect with a bit of  typography…

These were all from an incomplete set of Cooper Black – an ampersand and a Pilcrow!

    A sentence of the kind I would only ever come across on this website. Wonderful.
