Dragon Bowls

textured dragon bowls are thrown on the pottery wheal and after been left to dry i alter the rim to give some form of movement into each piece, i apply the dragon glaze to the inside of each bowl and this gives each one its own unique finish.
Ian Carty makes ceramics destined mainly for low temperature firing techniques, using glazes pushed to the edge ian revels in collaborations with forces that are never entirely under his control.
Everyone of Ian’s Dragons glaze pieces is a one of a kind work of art with enchanting surface texture, the technique Ian uses is often considered to be a glaze defect that should be avoided, but Ian has learned to use this so-called defect very effectively as an intentional decorative element, we should never seek perfection in a piece, just like life nothing is ever perfect, if everything was perfect we could never progress or change, it is our flaws and mistakes that make us stronger, instead we should appreciate the perfections in our quest for the perfect imperfection.
