“Artichoke Beast”, 2018
Wood fired porcelain
5” wide x 2”deep x 3” 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 five days. The ash coated the piece and melted into an beautiful glaze. The drips of glaze and the crystals are real treat on this beast. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
About the piece:
The Artichoke beast takes joy in the simpler parts of life. They're especially a fan of jigsaw puzzles. They once ate a puzzle piece by mistake, a true tragedy, rendering the puzzle unfinishable. Nowadays, they make sure to keep the plate of cookies and the tray of pieces on different parts of the table.
