For my new project I am taking inspiration from patterns and colours that can be found from rust and decay. Im especially interested in the different textures, materials and compositions these old and decaying objects take on due to use and weathering.

I have been experimenting with pressing metal into clay, trying to replicate patterns that rust create. Once biscuit fired, just like these pieces, it burns into the clay leaving this dark lines. In the centre of each pattern I have pressed in textured paper to make it more interesting. It will be interesting to see what happens to the copper wire once glazed.

My idea for the museum project was to add transfer pictures of Plymouth onto plain slip casted copies of the porcelain collection in the museum.
These are some examples that I made using plates that I got from a charity shop. I manipulated my digital photographs so they were able to be transferred onto a screen to then screen printed. I printed onto transfer paper using a medium suitable for ceramics and a blue stain to get the colour.
These are the finished pieces.
