Philippa de Burlet Blue Flower Soap Dish
Soap Dish with beautiful blue flower design and Suma Organic Soap
Philippa de Burlet makes all her pots and vases from porcelain, which is a strong white clay. The pieces are made on the wheel, painted in their raw (unfired) state and then biscuit fired. After the biscuit firing comes the glaze firing using a transparent matt glaze. Each ‘raw’ pot gives her a sense of anticipation just as a blank piece of paper does. "I paint, trail, incise, print and stencil directly onto the unfired clay surface – a smooth, white inviting, curved surface – and although I have a plan, and possibly even a drawing – the ‘plan’ often changes on impulse".
