As a member of the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council, I recently entered a porcelain piece for consideration for one of their latest juried exhibitions.
The show is entitled “Titanica” in honour of the 100 year anniversary of the legendary vessel’s sinking off the coast of Newfoundland. Its official opening is today, August 2nd, 2012 at the Mary E. Black Gallery in Halifax.
My piece, a slender porcelain cup with etchings inspired by stained glass windows of the impressive Titanic, were accepted and are now on display in this exhibition. I’m really happy to be part of this stunning show!
Here are some photos of one of the techniques and details I used to my submission. Once I have pro shots, I’ll add them here as well.
Until then, these should give you an idea of the detailing used when handbuilding this cup with stained glass window pattern, delicate handle and interior detailing.
I hope you like it as much as I liked making it!
“Titanica” runs until September 9th. If you’re in Halifax, drop by and have a look. I’d love to hear your feedback on my work.
Til next time,
