How Was It Made?
The black and white feature was first made as a separate part by fusing random white pieces onto a black background. This was then cut and shaped to fit the piece as shown.
I then cut and laid up the sides, and fused to around 800 C in the kiln until they formed a single piece. This was then hand finished to refine the edges and improve the overall symmetry.
Finally, it was slumped in a ceramic form to achieve that beautiful shape.
All sounds simple, but it took several days to complete all the steps.
