“Blue Belle”, 2019
Wood fired porcelain with stoneware antlers
4" long x 2.5" wide x 5" 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 Belle's sides. The antlers were sculpted from a dark stoneware. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
About the piece:
Belle is a sweet girl. She likes to sing quite a bit. Sometimes, I hear a quite peeping from my shop as she rounds the other beasts up into an impromptu quartet.
"Blue Belle" 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.
