Chloe Dowds Ceramics

Every element of design has been considered to stimulate and heighten the user’s experience of the piece. The work is wheel-thrown and then altered. Chloe adds a spiral in the soft clay, then make an indent where the handle will go. This allows for stimulation of the sense of touch and makes the mugs very comfortable to hold. Chloe indents a line into the handles intended as a texture for the thumb to explore.

The rims of the mugs are thrown thinly which is crisp and pleasing for the lips.The base of each piece is individually polished leaving the translucent porcelain soft to the touch. The glossy glaze compliments the curves and echoes the use of liquid.
