What is a wish pot?
Technically its an altered wheel thrown form, but my intension is to uplift spirits.
I started creating lidded versions that is to be filled with
positive notes, wish-fors, compliments & happy thoughts for those not so bright days. Through the years, i have
evolved to include non lidded versions. Some can hold singular notes or flowers & some are sculptural and totem-esk that serve as reminder of your wishes or need for uplifted spirit.
Since I alter as the wheel is spinning, each one is truly
unique and one of a kind. I get hypnotized by every curve as I try to create undulation that cannot happen in a commercial mold world. My inspiration comes from nature, caves, rock overhangs, or water eroding stone that i see when I hike.
My decoration technique ranges from slip, underglaze, Terra sigillata, raku glaze, & naked raku techniques to create contrast & accents where i want them.
Great for gifts or for yourself - bridal showers, anniversary, going away party, and just because.
My perfected technique has also expanded into functional forms which you can see on my dinnerware/functional page.
