Inspired by birdwatching from the studio windows, the Blackbird Plaque features a hand-painted motif using recycled clay slip.


Painted with rough, grogged clay slips, the Blackbird Plaque is textural and rustic in appearance.  Delicate details of the wing, eye and legs are quickly picked out using a needle tool before the clay dries for a three-dimentional effect. The clays utlitised are Vulcan Black, Terracotta Crank and White Stoneware clays.
