Stenciled Bottles

Here I made use of  ready-made objects, which is a Coka-Cola bottle that I made a mould of and slip cast to stencil on my decorations. I took several sheets of transparency paper and cut out my images, applied them to the bisqued surface of my bottles and sponged black amako and fired them again to harden onto the surface. Once they came out of the kiln, I applied a transparent glaze and fired to 11000C. These bottles stand in a sequence and tell a story from the images. The story is based on the night of Claudio’s(my brother) murder.
