Loose Threads is not part of my solo show, and will be available to ship in late July. It will take me 1-2 weeks to make a custom shipping box.
About the process:
This original handmade sculpture has a ceramic creature with an oak base. The "thread" is fabric coated wire. The creature was wood fired 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.
The shipping cost is my estimate for covering shipping and insurance, via UPS. If the cost of shipping is less, I'll refund any extra. I can also delivery it locally, and refund you the whole shipping cost.
For international shipping, the buyer will the responsible for import taxes. I can't presently ship to the UK.
