Week 10

Glazing

Redesigning the pots

I layered the coconut to create a stable and supportive pot. I also used natural string to help tie lose bits togeather.

Dying

I found that the material didn’t take to the lighter dyes when submerged for a short period of time. To create lighter blues within the pots I added salt, this allowed for a wider variety of colour as well as great textures that relate nicely to the movements of the sea.

I like how the string looks like old tangled up ropes that are found by the sea.
