‘Dishwasher Safe’ Kimberley Point


Today I experimented with a new material. This Kimberley Point was made from the base of a broken porcelain china teacup. It had one slightly convex, and one slightly concave surface and presented similar problems to beer bottle bases used previously. It was surprisingly enjoyable to work and consequently I am quite taken by it. It is harder than glass and seems to hold the notches better. I am not sure whether to make the base more symmetrical or to leave it as is. It is 64mm long, 36mm wide and 4mm thick with retouch penetrating between 5 and 10mm into each face from the margins. The ‘Dishwasher Safe’ title comes from the text left on the ventral surface.dventral
