His objects display the beauty of both the traditional pot form and the eloquence of the interplay of lines on the surface. He uses the terra sigillata technique instead of glazing. By experimenting with various layers of slips, he has succeeded in giving the pots an intense orange colour which suggests enormous depth. The decoration in the form of complicated patterns of black lines gives a sense of rhythm around the pot. This rhythm adds an extra dimension to the objects, and has been disengaged from the interplay of lines. Part of Ross’ inspiration for his decorative patterns comes from the Indian tradition of Ikat ceramics.
