“Party Hat”, 2018
Wood fired porcelains
3.5" long x 3" 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 2200 Fahrenheit over the course of five days. The wood ash settled onto the piece, melting into a beautiful glaze. This beast sat next to the firebox in the kiln, giving it an delightfully pebblying texture on its side. The skull hat is made of an extra pale porcelain that stayed lighter than the body of the beast. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
About the piece:
The patient beast is very happy with his party hat. He feels that it is the *most* festive. Tell me, will there be cupcakes?
