    Wedging Drawing

    I have created a functional ceramics project specifically for Kickstarter. The rewards include work that I have produced at every stage of the process of hand-building ceramic plates. The first step of the process involves preparing clay by wedging (I use the 'boar's head method' of wedging to homogenize and remove air from the clay body). The drawings available in this category are made by an accumulation of marks that result from wedging each piece of clay 100 times. Each drawing in this reward category is a different size because they are made on the off-cuts of the larger drawings described in the next two reward categories.

    Slab Forming Drawing

    I have created a functional ceramics project specifically for Kickstarter. The rewards include work I have produced at every stage of the process of hand-building ceramic plates. The second step in the process involves creating a circular slab of clay. This is done on top of a piece of paper, creating a drawing and record of the clay slab's expansion. Each drawing in this reward category is a slightly different size, which reflects the amount of clay used and the circumstances specific to that piece of clay and moment in the process.

    Plate Forming Drawing

    I have created a functional ceramics project specifically for Kickstarter. The rewards include work I have produced at every stage of the process of hand-building ceramic plates. The third step in the process involves forming the slab of clay into a plate form. Part of this process is achieved on top of a piece of paper, where a residual drawing reveals marks made by my hands and the action of turning the clay. These drawings are made through an accumulation of forming up to seven plates on a single piece of paper. Each drawing in this reward category is a slightly different size, reflecting the various plate sizes and particulars of the process.
