Using the liquid properties of slip (liquified clay), the Swirl Dishes capture time, motion, the maker's hand, and the movement of the liquid over time.
Layering ceramic slip, the maker slowly rotates molds as it dries controlling the speed, angle, and overlap, so each piece shows the mark of the liquid with layers, swirls, and a natural edge, making each one completely unique.
Please note that each item is different and emerges out of a process designed to create variation through hand work. High degrees of variation are the goal of this design and process.
Every piece is made individually by the designer in mid-fire stoneware, which offers a high degree of sturdiness in these thin, fine pieces.
