The ocean doesn't want me


Ready for bisque. Coil- built paper porcelain,one layer of black slip,one of dark blue,topped off with a layer of Cool-Ice porcelain slip which fits nicely with the glaze.Images scratched in with everything from a satay skewer to a stanley -knife. Who knows what colour it will fire to.
Thematically it runs the gamut from cheesy-pop song sea metaphors to those ancient maps of undiscovered lands.

The pot is surrounded by fish made by students from the local primary school.
