These ceramic print beakers by Hannah Tounsend combine ceramics and printmaking to create collections of sensitively realised vessel forms that explore the layered landscapes and sea-washed, weatherworn surfaces of the British coastline. Marks, lines and diffused merging colours are built up, cut through and dissolved away.

Hannah has developed an unusual, hybrid making technique to form her contemplative vessel pieces. Within an open plaster mould, she builds layers of printed, poured and painted casting slips, overlaying colours on the porous surface. These designs are incorporated into a cast shell of clay before mould and cast are fixed centrally to a throwing wheel. A partially thrown cylinder of plastic clay is joined to the cut rim of the still-moulded cast and fully thrown out. The presence of the mould allows the formation of a flange of clay that accentuates the join and breaks away in irregular fragments as the piece shrinks and pulls inwards.
