Xanthoria Ananas

23.5"H x 21"W x 13"D

Wheel-thrown & sandblasted “pineapple” tea set, slab built tray with crackle “lichen” glaze, made of a mixed clay body of high fire stoneware and porcelain.

INSPIRATION

I’ve been playing with brighter colours for awhile in the crackle glaze.  The lichen idea came together really quickly as I was trying to decide how to finish the tray; I wanted it to look like a stone with lichen growing on it.  Similarly with the tea set, I’ve been playing with sandblasting ideas (for a frosted look) for a couple of years and started playing with the different tea pot shape late last year, so I was really excited to have the show coming up as a reason to make it a priority.
