"Sky Messenger”, 2019,
Wood fired porcelain
8.5” 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. This beast shows all the beauty of the wood firing, from crystal growth and ash runnels to the beautiful red of the raw clay. The horns are a paler porcelain, along with the tiny cloud wisps on the feet. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
This beast is a bit larger than most of the others.

About the piece:
