Experiments with volcanic sand

I have made some experiments in January & February, planning to apply for a Ceramics Biennale in Hungary. These limited edition pots will appear on my webshop soon and you will find other exciting pieces for sale. I brought back from Canary Island some fine volcanic black sand 2 years ago and I thought I would try to wedge it into the porcelain. Then I threw some teardrop shape bottles and wider bowls. The sand came through beautifully the material and the glaze. The bowls are combined with old grape branches and the fine porcelain creates a nice balance with the rough chunky wood. Watch out my space, more interesting pieces are on the way.
