Ceramic stoneware bowl, manganese slip decorated with black glazed interior.
Dimensions: 13 x 19 cm.
Gavin Nettleton returned to ceramics in his retirement after a career as a e-learning specialist. He turns both stonerware and porcelain, decorating the former with textured slip and manganese oxide and the latter with simple buttery glazes and cobalt oxide. Form and texture are his particular focus and he also produces some with which is turned then altered and finished by hand.
This work was shown at Atelier Beside the Sea as part of the Atelier OPEN 2023 exhibition.
