“Babe, the little blue beast”, 2019
Wood fired porcelain
4" long x 2" wide x 4" 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 2200 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The wood ash settled onto the piece, melting into a thick blue glaze, with drips running along Babe's sides. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
About the piece:
Babe has a cousin who's apparently an ox. She's not quite sure how that happened. They're both very similar. Favorite ice creams, the way they sneeze, sense of humor. Except for their size, and that, well, she's not an ox.
"Babe" will be sent out via USPS Priority Mail on May 15th, safely and securely heading your way. In case of overpayment for international shipping or multiple purchases, I'll refund the extra.
