Snowfrack and Icefrack

These lidded containers, Snowfrack and Icefrack, created in 2013 are hand built from stacks of slabs of iron-rich stoneware clay. The containers were then thrown on the wheel to consolidate the interior space and to form a gallery for the lid. The lid has a cut out section for the fingers and a curved base.

Magnesium Matte Glaze

The containers are finished with a white matte glaze sprayed from one direction only to emulate the drifting of snow. The pieces are fired to 1300°C in a reducing atmosphere in a gas kiln.
