When Victoria was hit hard back in July by COVID19 and most of the States businesses closed, I was lucky enough to receive a grant from Regional Arts Victoria to support research into Soluble Salts and Translucent Porcelain. This grant allowed me the funds to pay for materials and time to do research into what effects can be achieved at different temperatures and to play around with the possibilities of translucency. I began with basic slip cast forms at lower temperatures and then moved to porcelain cocoon and hand-built forms. For images of the soluble salt works go to the images gallery.
