‘Après Mira’ mixed media collage 2013.
I made this piece after visiting the Mira Schendel exhibition at the Tate modern. I layered old dress making patterns, adding handwritten and dry transfer text in between the transparent collage layers.
Mixed media collage with ceramic vessel
Entering final phase of preparation for upcoming show.
Fitting own work in around teaching and family proving tricky to juggle!

Really pleased with a new painting I’ve been working on, mixing rivot imagery with dress pattern collage. My painting experiments serve as studies for surface and patterning on my ceramic pieces.
I am also reworking some previous pieces by collaging sections of dress pattern and snippets of text and also adding more slivers of colour.
stage 2 after firing the base colour to fix it, I paint the first layer of coloured stripes by masking and painting freehand. I work on lots of pieces at once jumping from one to the next to mix and match the colours I choose.

stage 1 is to apply a thin layer of underglaze colour all over bisque ware surface, starting with a thin wash then buffing back to reveal the texture and details.
