“Blue Beast”, 2018
Wood fired porcelain
6” wide x 2”deep 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 2300 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The ash coated the piece and melted into an beautiful glaze. This beast is very pale white blue, due its location close to the front of the kiln, with crystals on its back haunch. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
About the piece:
The blue beast is a bit larger than most of its colleagues. It used to feel a bit awkward about this. However, with time, the beast's cuddly nature overcame its awkwardness. It now uses its extra bulk to serve as a resting place for its friends. Friends really do make the best pillows.
