Monsoon Tint Platter
Monsoon Tint Platter is a one-off decorative piece created by glass artist, Celia Dowson, which was inspired by her time at a ceramic residency in Taiwan during the monsoon season. Through form and colour, this series of work explores the interplay of light on surfaces, drawing inspiration from the breadth of the natural world.
For this piece, Celia has used fine frit to create a soft gradation from green to clear. Air bubbles trapped between layers of crushed glass create a hazy, mist like quality and the subtle change in colour echoes the blooming fauna Celia discovered scattered along wild mountain trails in Taiwan.
The finished platter takes on a form that proposes a function, but with a conceptual narrative that evokes time and place, allowing it to become a contemplative object.
