Forest Beast Study
“Forest Beast Study”, 2010
Wood fired stoneware and porcelain
5” wide x 2”deep x 5.5” 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 2300 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The ash coated the piece and melted into an beautiful glaze. I made the trees, teeth, and birds out a variety of different clays, each of which reacted differently to the ash. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
About the piece:
This was a study for an idea I later turned into a much larger piece. Tree and beasts are an idea that's stayed with me and keeps reoccuring in my work in different forms. I always love looking back and seeing the variety of forms it has taken.
