Lovely to see her slip trailed vases and bowls, pictured here in their pre and post glazed stages.

Considering the line and form is obviously a large part of Tania’s work.

Nature plays another fundamental role.

Fascinating to see how Tania’s drawings and paintings reflect her finished ceramics. Some forms (below) even appear to be midway between the drawing and painted stages of completion. Wonderful sense of line and movement.

Elements of repeat pattern, nature and geometry are reiterated in different ways on a variety of shapes and ceramic forms.

    Beautiful work. I really like the blue color. Interesting how some lines are colored in, some not. My heart started to desire that vase 4th photo up from the bottom, right side, with the larger black circles–I just noticed there are 2 photos of it. I really like the shape of it. (but then I saw the fern leaf pattern and wanted that too.) (last photo).

      Thanks Joy, I think some of the natural ferns and seed head patterns appealed to my senses, but then there’s something for everyone in there.. it’s too hard to choose just one !
