Sophie MacCarthy Oval Dish SMAUG1


Highly-decorative oval dish with brightly coloured slip decoration. Thrown and decorated by London based potter, Sophie MacCarthy.

Sophie’s slip-painted techniques achieve a distinctive level of depth and movement which she has made uniquely her own. By painting with coloured slips directly on to a dry clay surface, an immediacy is created prompting spontaneity and greater tonal depth. Patterns are created using stencils, paper cut-outs and wax resists.
