A Slightly Different Take,

on the decoration of ceramics,

 by using a number colored liquid clays,

  Sean Forest Roberts reveal surprising streaks of color and pattern beneath their smooth monochrome surfaces,

Roberts, who operates as Forest Ceramic Company, mixes and pours successive coats,  

  to create the colorful patterns in his ceramics,

he then uses carving tools to unearth layered colors in motifs based on patterns and structures found in nature, the artist, who is based in Orcas Island in Washington, has a background in chemistry and working in science labs, and that scientific background informs his experimental mindset,

there is something strangely satisfying watch the still soft clay revealing the patterns underneath,

in lines and circles,

You can see more from Forest Ceramic Company on Instagram and Facebook and purchase finished works on their website, and no I am not on commision, I am just fascinated looking at the way the multi layers of color are revealed.
