About This Project

“Deep sea” is inspired by sunken ships and their lost treasures. When ancient old cargo was found on the sea bed, all the pottery would be encrusted with sea-life, sand, debris and barnacle.

The shapes I have chosen for these vases are round and smooth as if the water shapes stones over long periods of time.

The glaze on the outside has different shades of greens like the algae. On the inside the vessels are black and dark as if still filled with earth and sand. The glaze is an unusual combination of two different types of glaze which are reacting through the wall of the vessel with each other – which makes every pot absolutely unique.
