Her work progressed dramatically from small scale work to this large coiled sculpture inspired by a beaded hairband! She left the large coils showing on the outside and then applied press-moulded spheres in different sizes (after making a plaster mould). Balancing the large curving form was a challenge.
At leather-hard stage she applied porcelain slip onto the main body and black slip onto the balls. After bisque firing she glazed the balls with clear glaze. The inside of the ‘mouth’ of the worm-like tube was glazed with a copper red glaze.
