It’s Monica hope that her work would bring a delightful pause. Modern life, with a very hectic pace, seldom provides us with the opportunity for a smile and joyous calm.
Monica’s work begins as pure white porcelain. Voluptuous pottery shapes are thrown on a wheel, then carved and /or altered. Underglaze colour is applied directly to raw clay, and fired on prior to glazing. Semi-transparent glaze seals over the underglaze colour, ensuring the decoration will never fade or wear away with use. Further, the glaze’s mysterious translucence adds variation to each area of pattern.
For Monica, colour is the celebration of life and colourful pots bring life to celebrations. Afternoon tea, dinner parties, festive brunches and wine and cheese & socials are the ultimate ideal resting places for Monica’s pottery with funky fruit and jiggly geometrics.
