Relaxing with the Cat
Raku Fired Ceramic Wall Hanging
approx. 6w x 9h inches
Apple Crackle, Golden Luster, and Copper Penny glazes over a Laguna Blend clay body.
|This piece is one of my favorite from a series of ceramic wall hangings created in 2005. Each piece begins as a slab of clay, which is then draped over an arrangement of stones to create an irregular undulating surface. The modified slab serves as a blank canvas for gesture drawing from a live model. As the clay dries the drawing is refined and sculpted in low relief. The final work is bisque fired and then raku fired in a 55 gallon drum kiln.|
