Cholla Bowl

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.
