For my second project, first in ceramics I was able to look at fruits in the project My Favourite Food. In metal I looked at rambutan but in ceramics I mostly focused on berries – which are actually my favourite food to eat, as opposed to rambutan where it was purely the form that intrigued me. When researching it turns out nothing I like is technically a berry but I chose to ignore that fact and go crazy with raspberries and strawberries. It’s not just the taste but the colour, the texture of the fruit that I love. I love the repetition in the raspberries and the plumpness around the seeds of the strawberry – that remind me of those old fashioned sofas with the buttons, whatever they are called. The big pot on the left of the picture above was my first ever attempt at coiling.
