Philip : The Platypus

This is a series of products derived from form explorations of an inspiration taken from nature. The animal I chose to take forward was a Platypus. As I worked further with the form, I grew very fond of the platypus and started referring to him as Philip. Unfortunately due to a few glazing glitches, the batch of firing didn’t come out well but since I was attached to the concept, I held on to it.
