Fish Bone

Susanne Haag Keramiek Visgraat

Three rectangle objects with herringbone motif, height 35 cm. This object is put together with layers of clay of 8 mm. I use a template to cut the clay. The bottom and the top are different in width. Per object I alternate this so that they fit together and the motif can run over the three objects. The shapes are fired electrically (900°C) To put the herringbone motif on the object requires time and attention. I then draw the lines in glaze. Those lines will be white after the firing and where there is no glaze the space blackens in the process of raku firing.
