Toroids

The toroid series uses the form of the torus (Geometry’s bagel) to investigate materiality & a range of surface treatments.

Many of the toroids made during this residency have focused on new metallic crystalline glazes that I have been developing.  These glazes form small disc-like crystals of excess metallic oxides and silica that bond together and bloom while the kiln cools.

Anthropophorae
