Wood fired porcelain and polished stainless steel
5” wide x 2.5”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 2300 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The ash coated the piece and melted into an beautiful glaze. This beast features some remarkable black markings on her belly. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame. Once the piece was complete, I mounted her on a sheet of stainless steel.
About the piece:
She just really loves swimming, you know?
