"Moon’s blessing", 2019,
Wood fired porcelain and stoneware, gold plated chain
4.5” long x 2.5” wide 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. The firing that this beast is from was a difficult one, where we chose to fire the kiln for most of an extra day - a decision that paid off in the end. The moons were made of a paler porcelain that contrasted against the porcelaneous stoneware of the body. All of the colors are from the flame, the ash, and the clay.
