Wood fired porcelain, oak base, wire and thread.
13" wide x 6" deep x 6" tall
About the process:
This original handmade sculpture has a ceramic creature with a oak base. The "thread" is fabric coated wire. The creature 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 beautiful speckled glaze. The inside of the piece has been coated in black ceramic slip. All the colors of this piece come from the fire, the clay, and the slip.
About the piece:
Be careful which threads you pull. You don't alway know how you are held together.
"Loose Threads" is a larger, more complex piece, and will take extra time to pack up. It will be ready to ship within a week. It will travel via either USPS priority mail or via UPS, depending on the final measurements. In the case of international shipping, I'll refund any overpayment.
