|"Relaxing with Dogs" depicts a quiet scene of a reclining woman surrounded by her pets. ( Yes there is a cat too! ) The piece is one of a series of Raku fired 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.|
