Another reason I love ceramics is those moments when you try something new and you never know how the chemicals will react with each other. And when it works your mind is overwhelmed with new ideas and applications.
Finally managed to finish this Christmas commission for a very patient customer in Germany. The recipient of those cups will not be disappointed. They are so thin, eggshell thin and very smooth. Took a lot of attempts to make them so thin and keep their shape but they totally worth it.
Revisiting my favourite colour combination of black and red on white of the Amoeba dishes for a light installation.
Different angle to see how round they are like a donut shape but still maintain the sharp corner on the rims. Special formulated porcelain which behaves like glass due to pyroplasticity but maintain the porcelain properties.
Thank you @canarywharfmag for the feature and @canarywharflondon for the opportunity!

Mallow vessels snuggling nicely! More sizes to come out of the kiln and they will be even smaller than those two!
Today started snowing in London and that weather reminds me of that fine bone china vessel I did back in the summer which reminiscences of compacted snow. So thin and delicate like snow yet so strong like ice.

And the mini mallow family is growing! Those are smaller versions of the very large ones I did last year for Tate Modern's new homeware shop. Soon available on my online shop.
