Working in the design studio
Dryden, the director of the design studio, asked me to help with the prototype for a large design project the studio is working on. This is the test run of a vase that will be in the Peninsula hotel in shanghai. Latex was applied to create the three rings and then a clear glaze was sprayed on. When the latex was removed the edge of the clear was rough and wavered. My job was to clean up the the edge so it was a smooth continuous line and the paint in the blue glaze where the latex had been. The piece is still green ware porcelain so it took extra care in cleaning and handling.
