Tube Forms


These are formed by pouring parian slip into custom made tube moulds which again are very simplistic, providing me with a blank canvass to cut, fold, indent and add slip ‘ribbons’.  They are presented on either oak or slate blocks.

The tube forms are fired either lying on a bed of ceramic fibre or standing upright, depending on the amount of heat distortion to the profile I require.

Decorated with black parian slip and highlighted with mother of pearl and platinum lustre they are fired to 1220 degrees centigrade followed by a lustre firing to 750 degrees centigrade.
