These three bowls are ones I photographed at the British Museum recently. I am fascinated by the way script is incorporated using those scrolls.
The bowl above is what I've been working on today. I was supposed to be illustrating the Ancient Mariner but I don't know what came over me I just remembered this song from my childhood and it seemed quite cheerful and I just went in this direction! At 6:30 I had to stop and cook dinner so I haven't painted on the oxides and underglaze colours yet. All the green colour is just food colouring. I've been drawing ships all week and they don't seem to fit onto the bowls all that well- too many straight lines maybe. I'm going to try them on some larger jugs to see how they look on a more three dimensional vertical shape.
