“The Pear-Shaped Beast”, 2018
Wood fired porcelains
3.5" long x 3.5" wide x 3.5" 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. The teeth are 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. This particular beast shows all the colors of a wood firing in on sweet little monster.

About the piece:
Tell me, just what is so wrong with going "pear-shaped"? Pears are quite delicious and sweet. Though they can be a bit crunchy if you get them at the wrong time.
