Beast with an Egg
“Beast with an Egg”, 2019
Wood fired porcelains
4.5" long x 4" wide 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 2200 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The wood ash settled onto the piece, melting into a speckled glaze. The egg and wings are of a lighter colored porcelain. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
About the piece:
True story: this beast once had two eggs, but they went missing. This egg was found long forgotten, hiding in a bookcase. Now, the egg has a home and the beast has an egg.
Your beast 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.
