Paper clay, multi-fired, glazed and saggar fired
This sculpture is fun because it can be placed in different positions for variety. The holes were initially inspired by the cholla plant. The piece was glaze fired initially. I liked the texture of the lichen glaze. Then, I decided to push the color into a more organic direction, so I put a very thin layer of terra sigillata and fume fired the piece. This produced some nice maroon fuming, while retaining the red/orange underglaze in the interior.
