Under & over glazed with gold paint
In 2018 I was invited to attend an art residency at the Ceramic Institute of Jingdezhen. In that residency I chose to work on projects related to my heritage. My research took me on a journey back in time, to the times of my forefathers the Scandinavian Vikings. It led me to the woodcuts dated from the year 750 - 1200 that I used as a theme for my porcelain work. Over the 3 months spent at the residency I truly connected to my heritage through the porcelain and the craftsman of Jingdezhen, China.
In 2019 I was once again in Jingdezhen to do some more work for over 2 months I experiment with some other paintings.
Blue and white or Cobalt is the most signeture way of decorate porcelain and if you ask anybody about Chinese porcelain people refer to that style.
This piece took well over one month to make with 3 different temperature firing. The first firing was made with under glaze Cobalt painting, the second firing was used with deep orange background over glaze color and finaly 13% gold paint with the last firing.
