Buna Dabo Naw by Sarah E Hurst


ink and coffee on paper

38 x 28 cm


The piece is depicting a woman and her three children walking across the African landscape with a golden sun shining down on them. I used the coffee in a similar way to watercolour, building layers on top of each other. Initially I spilled the coffee onto the paper and tipped it to create different sections and shapes. Using varied consistency of coffee helped with creating more defined lines, patterns, texture and detail.

  • Having not painted onto ceramic surfaces before I was initially a little daunted. My goal was that both pieces would be linked, and that the mug was interesting to look at.
