Ceramic Paint Research

December, 2011

By treating materials as paint and using them to colour earthenware and china, I developed a colour chart with 108 different colours. Twelve materials originating from the china, tin and copper industry in Cornwall were used to form the basis for this chart.

The colours show the richness of the landscape in which they were once flourishing industries. In order to turn them into ceramic paint, the materials have been dried and ground, diluted with water and applied as a colour coating to earthenware and china.
