Blue Grid Gradient

Blue Grid Gradient has a structural composition of colored porcelain, and is inspired by the repetitive patterns of textiles as well as the grids of Agnes Matin.
I´m interested in weavings as a source of inspiration, and I am working with proportionality in lines and color fields.
My focus is to explore the vanishing effect, where the colors dissolve into a weightless nothingness, the darkest tone being at the bottom and the lightest at the top of the vessel.
Blue Grid Gradient is inspired by the grids of the painter Agnes Martin, and the blue graduated color tones are formed in an interplay with a white grid.
I have developed a complex technique of mixing colors in a graduated color scheme, by cutting slabs into narrow stripes of porcelain.
Like patchwork, at each color change, there is a new layer of porcelain, and the vessel has an expression of crisp fragility.
The blue color is made by coboltoxyd, with a reference to traditional blue and white porcelain.
