WA Floral Collection by Danica Wichtermann

These organic vessels take on the forms of the Western Australian land and botanical life, reflecting colour, form and feeling. They are there to be explored, to draw you into their own internal worlds, to be discovered and unveiled.

These pieces were created by first throwing a double walled symmetrical vessel. The piece is thrown in one go on the wheel and I then work on each layer to thin it out and give it form. I then alter each layer/wall using my fingers, sponges or a tool, to transform the shape, adding movement to give it a more sculptural look.

Once leather hard, the piece is carved and refined before I spray on different coloured under-glazes. The works are then fired and re-sprayed and glazed before its final firing.
