“Fish Catcher", 2016
Wood fired porcelain
9” wide x 5” deep 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 2100 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. This beast, and its buddy "Fish Eater", were fired in 2016, part of a body of aquatic themed work. The teeth are of a paler porcelain, and the fish is a darker stoneware. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
About the piece:
It's about the thrill of the hunt, really. The suspense, the chase, and the attempt to keep hold of your slippery, slippery prey.
Your beast will be sent out via USPS Priority Mail on December 16th or 17th, safely and securely heading your way. In case of overpayment for international shipping or multiple purchases, I'll refund the extra. Shipments to within the continental United States should arrive before December 25th.
If you would like gift wrapping or would like for the receipt to not include the price, let me know before the 16th and I can make it happen.
