Tiny Skull Number 9
Tiny Skull Number 9, 2022
Wood fired porcelain
2.5" long x 2" wide x 1" tall
About the process:
This original handmade sculpture was wood fired 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 100 hours. As the firing goes on, the wood ash settles on the pieces and melts into a ceramic glaze. The teeth are out of a purer porcelain than the skull. All the colors come the clay, the ash, and the flame, with no added glaze or slip.
About the piece:
This is a tiny, slip-cast ceramic skull. I made 10 of them this firing! The left cheek on this one blushed red.
Your skull will be sent out via USPS Priority Mail by December 7th, safely and securely heading your way. In case of overpayment for international shipping or multiple purchases, I'll refund the extra. Shipments to within the continental United States should arrive before December 25th, assuming the post office cooperates.
