Nude Collection No.1
Nude Collection No. 1 refers to pottery adorned with figurative sgraffito. Life drawings on paper are translated into the clay after the drawing session has concluded.
The multitudinous manifestations of the human body are enthralling, and offer a wealth of inspiration. Certain poses stand proudly on their own, captivating in their own right, whilst others lend themselves to having additional slipware techniques in their midst.
The exposed clay body beneath and introduction of coloured slips into the wet slip background, helps to frame the composition, placing the figure in a harmonious context.
