Wonders Of The Deep - Orbiting Waves

I am proud to introduce the Wonders of the Deep Orbiting Waves design into my collection of designs celebrating the wonders of the deep. This is a hand thrown spherical piece using slip-trailing and black and white shades or pastel blue colours to depict the ocean in all its glory.

I was inspired to create this design because of the stirring feelings I observed within myself resulting from gazing at a stormy sea. I was memorised by the sheer power of the ocean as each waved came ashore, crashing like thunder. One after the other, each with its own strength and purpose. As day turned into night, there was no stopping the relentlessness of the motions from the ocean waves, only details were lost by the ensuing darkness, but their power and presence remained vivid. In the Orbiting Waves design I sought to capture the sense of movement arising from a turbulent sea.

One of the design challenges was to choose the right shades of colour to use on the rolling waves. After much experimentation, I decided that a gentle mix of blues and greens worked perfectly to convey the sense of movement I was seeking to depict. To detail the powerful nature of that movement I created waves with a visible crest. I also wanted to capture the essence of the ocean as night fell, which I achieved through the use of black and white and delicate shading.

I am very pleased to introduce the Wonders of the Deep Orbiting Waves design in both colour and black and white ranges. The Orbiting Waves black and white is available on a large 12 spherical vase, recommended retail price 2400 inc VAT, limited edition of 1/1.

The design is available on a medium 7 spherical vase, recommended retail price 800 inc VAT, limited edition of 9.

And also available on a small 5 spherical vase, recommended retail price 352 inc VAT, limited edition of 9.

All measurements are approximate.
