In the current series of playful slab-built tripod pots, I am experimenting with colourful, patterned surfaces. Working on flat slabs allows me to layer coloured slips in different combinations of marks and patterns, to build a rich and complex surface. I use hand cut stencils, masking techniques and freehand brushwork. The slabs are then wrapped around a cylindrical former and folded in at the base to create the three feet and pleasingly curved arcs, lifting the pot up and lending it visual lightness.
