“Spike”, 2018
Wood fired porcelains
4" long x 3" wide x 4" 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. The teeth were sculpted from an extra pale porcelain, while the bird friend was sculpted from a dark stoneware. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame.
Due to the dynamic nature of this beast's pose, I recommend displaying it with a bit of "quake putty" or "museum putty" for extra security. I'll include some with the beast

About the piece:
Spike is a good boy. He really is. He's not always the fastest, but he gets there eventually.
