I visited the Zoology Museum, Cambridge University and sketched items on display that appealed to me. My first response was to try making some porcelain corals but this was not successful. Time passed and whilst out for a walk, I thought of the idea to create a relief decoration from my drawing of a coral. I trialled different methods but the properties of the porcelain clay meant that there were some failures and broken pots! I now have a successful method. the drawings and stages of making are to be seen in a short video.

These drawing were done and through numerous trials I succeeded in developing a method of relief decoration.
