"Sharp Eared Beast", 2020
Wood fired porcelaneous stoneware and porcelain
5.5" long x 3" wide x 6" tall

About the process:
This original handmade sculpture was woodfired in a traditional Japanese-style anagama kiln. The kiln was fed with wood every five to ten minutes until it reached temperatures of 2300 Fahrenheit over the course of 100 hours. As the firing goes on, the wood ash settles on the pieces and melts into a ceramic glaze. I make the teeth out of a purer porcelain that stays pearly white, despite the ash. This piece has a much softer look than some of its siblings, with less gloss. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.

About the piece:
The sharp eared beast has a lot to say. I still haven't figured out which language they're saying it in, but it definitely has some strong opinions. About something? Maybe cabbage.

About shipping:
Your beast will be sent out via USPS Priority Mail by December 7th, safely and securely heading your way. In case of overpayment for international shipping or multiple purchases, I'll refund the extra. Shipments to within the continental United States should arrive before December 25th, assuming the post office cooperates.
