Sacred Full Moon Plate
The Sacred Full Moon collection is inspired by sacred geometry, the moon, eclipse season and all the beautiful souls I connect with in daily life. As always my work is done by letting my creative side and intuition run wild, from a deep place within honoring the earth and ancient rituals and traditions sourced from the full moon.
This collection came about during eclipses, full moons and many planets in retrograde. The Moon represents our inner emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.
These plates are thrown on the wheel and when leather hard the foot ring is trimmed in. The contrasting clay is applied to the surface with a brush and left to dry before the design is carved into the plate surface. Once bone dry the plate undergoes it’s first 10 hour firing to 1000 degrees. When the kiln is cooled the plate is then glazed with one of my glazes I hand make in my studio. The second firing takes the piece to around 1240 degrees over 10 hours with a slow cooling of around 18 hours. Each piece is handmade with love over s number of weeks
