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 especially on the bottom (lower image). 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. Got some nice maroon fuming, while retaining the red/orange underglaze in the interior.
