Elements: earth fire
Rosalie has always been inspired by textures and forms found in the landscape and seashore, especially the chalk cliffs and flint seams found locally in East Sussex.
She currently works in stoneware and uses layers of silicon carbide slip with feldspathic glaze, contrasting with coloured or neutral slips to organise elements into strata layering and stripes.
Surface results depend on thickness of glaze and heat in kiln to react together. Fired to 1240 degrees in an electric kiln, he results are usually predictable but there are exciting surprises when happy accidents occur.
Making a range of forms - bowls, bottles and lidded pots Rosalie makes in different ways, both
wheel thrown and hand building using grogged and smooth clay.
