Inspiration from Michael Cardew

A few weeks ago I saw at close hand some Michael Cardew Pots
that were Black with simple white slip decoration.

The simplicity and beauty of the pots has been playing on my mind ever since.
This 12" dish has been painted all over with Black Slip
and I have just trailed a white slip on top.
I have tried to keep the design simple and flowing.
