Shell Forms

It’s interesting how designs develop over time. At the moment I’ve got a shell shaped bowl that has slightly changed its form within the time it’s taken me to make a kilnload. The bowls in the first photo are some examples from a few years ago of shell inspired forms. The second photo shows some current work on the same theme. The pattern on the wavy bowl and plate is produced by rolling the pictured shells in a circle, point in. The spirals this method produces are so incredibly perfect.


  1. I love the plate, it's like lace!

  2. Like a randomised doily. It will look different when glazed- the glazes pick out the textures as light and dark patterns.
