is a coiled piece made from white earthenware clay, which stands approximately 60cm high x 35cm wide. The piece has insects made in press moulds, which have been attached to the piece with slip, then have been indented with pattern and fired to 1160c. Coloured glaze has been rubbed into the indentation and wiped away, as well as being painted on to the surface area before being fired to 1080c. Coloured enamels, gold lustre, mother-of-pearl and enamel transfers have then been applied to some areas of the outside to give more definition and fired again to 800c. A final layer of paint has been added and heated to a temperature of 150c to add a metallic raised effect. When the glazing process has been completed, objects such as nails and bits of plastic have been added to show how little particles of our world get lost, hidden and then when washed away, can be revealed in unlikely places. Following a visit to the Lake District this piece is about the complexity of what we are mirrored by our landscape. Used, lost, hidden, exposed, revealed and so the cycle begins again. The piece is signed and dated by the artist January 2013.
