Size: 7″ tall, 10″ long x 7″ deep
Media: Multi-fired paperclay, ceramic stains and glaze, ink wash, wax
Description: Small “Personal Sculpture” can be touched, arranged as desired. Rests in different positions.
Clay has had paper-pulp and vermiculite added, allowing thin, lightweight slabs and organic extensions that are quite strong. Stains and slips layered between multiple firings, almost like applying a patina finish. Final finish of wax medium after the last firing. Sometimes this method results in the most amazing patterns and colors like on this piece, where the surface is reminiscent of an encaustic painting, but in 3-D with each side totally different.
