Howling at the Moon
I am very lucky to know some amazing moon babes in my lifetime, who jump in the sea on a full moon and howl at the moon, whom undoubtably have inspired me and my work. these howling at the moon planters in particular!!
The abstract moon planters represent the beauty of a full moon in all her glory. The reflection she casts over the deep blue and that glorious moon light bouncing off the water. These moon babe planter were created in celebration of the pull of the moon and all the moon babes out there, i hope you will always continue to howl back.
The phases of the moon symbolise immortality and eternity. In astrology, the moon is a symbol of the soul and this resonates with me as my love for the luna who brings light to our dark winter nights here in Ireland, we are affected by her pull, receding and renewing as often as the tides.
The abstract water pools are done in a self developed blue underglaze, i paint these on while the clay is still wet.Once dry enough it is then bisque fired to 1020 degrees, then I hand paint on a clear crackle glaze and fire again to 1080 degrees, lastly the gold luster moon and moon reflections are added and fired once again to 800 degrees.
