Wood fired porcelain
4" wide x 3" deep x 3" 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 ash coated the piece and melted into an beautiful glaze. The bone that this lovely beast is chewing is of a paler porcelain than porcelanious stoneware that makes up the main beast. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
About the piece:
Winter is a time for gluttony. Specifically, good-hearted gluttony. You find your friends and your family, and bond over delicious (or familar) foods. Food and drink oil the social anxiety, and give you a common activity as you catch up, debate, and chew the fat. There's nothing quite like sitting around, pleasantly full, in good company, while you pick over the bones.
