mixture of terracotta and white clay, engobe and underglaze applied while still quite damp
this will be bisque fired before deciding on the next stages of colouring – a lot could happen between this stage and the final piece. approx 50 cm tall
Nearly 2 months since I have posted something – we have been very busy helping our eldest twin prepare for her latest adventure – 12 months volunteering in North Yorkshire UK. Apparently it started to snow yesterday – her first experience of the white, wet stuff !!! I have not entirely neglected the studio and this morning 3 new ceramic sculptures went into the kiln. Sneak peak of one of them before firing …these are still from the sirens, satyrs, sinners and saints series
ceramic sculpture, underglaze, engobe, inlay, print and stains 60 x 25 cm
Sometimes documenting work before they go into the fire can be a useful practice. This piece had a little explosion
and has suffered some facial damage and a missing shoulder/back section – but all is not lost and I have replaced the shoulder with a meccano structure and the damage echoes traces of life experience.
This is a big heavy piece 80 x 40 x 30 cm – a mixture of terracotta and white clay. underglaze, stains – burnished.
I will post the finished piece as soon as I can get it photographed.
