The Oxide Decal Collection is Inspired by the local countryside and coastline, beach combing along the shore line for lost and found treasures. The forms are hand-thrown on a potters wheel. The surfaces are treated with a myriad of layered oxides, decals, slips and imprints to convey an abstract landscape. Each unique piece is made from porcelain and finished with clear and coloured food-safe glazes, creating pieces which can be used and enjoyed everyday.
