‘Banksiere’ 2019

‘Banksiere’ is a wheel-thrown composite form, made in stoneware.

It was created to hold and sustain five Coastal Banksia branches from its spouts.
The Coastal Banksia is endemic to where I live and it has captivated me.
It has been decorated with white porcelain slip and cobalt.
The surface of swirling, freeform line work is a visual link to the coastal tea tree found in the same area.
This vessel is part of an ongoing investigation, into the influence, of my natural surroundings on my ceramics practice.

This vessel is a reinterpretation of the ‘blue and white’ ceramic tradition. A connection to my British and Anglo Indian heritage.
My Banksiere is a contemporary vessel to reconnect the past with the present.
It’s form is based on the Tulipiere.
