Compositions on blue – 4


Refractory clay, blue slip, glazed

Fired in electric kiln at 1080ºC

2019, Alexandre Carvalho


This piece was constructed in three parts which were later attached, after the different firings. In that way, I was able to make a piece in which the color goes darker from top to bottom, which is a characteristic I much appreciate.

This piece is part of the work created for an exhibition entitled “Compositions on blue and ceramic studies” which took place in gallery Espaço Q, between 8 and 27 June 2019,  and featured abstract paintings and ceramic pieces surrounding the theme of blue (see link to the Facebook album of the inauguration).

In this group of works I tried different combinations of slip and glazes, in order to achieve the widest possible range of blues.
