“Ears”, 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 beautifully on the piece. Crystals grew in the melted ash, giving ears her distinct speckles. The flame painted her ears remarcably, giving the protected pockets beautiful colors. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.

About the piece:
Oh, Ears is so very sweet. She just wants to be your friend. I mean, look at her face. She's ready to sit an listen to your troubles. She's long ago mastered the skill of listening to the tale of a hard day without those endless suggestions of what you should have done instead.
