Large Sculpture

I made this sexy "pot" while experimenting with clay and form during my Peter Callas phase. I may be insane selling it this inexpensive!!

This thick sculptural vessel was ripped, carved and smacked around until it decided it was just right. It was fired on its side to get maximum color variety.

It was fired in a Japanese style Anagama kiln and is made of a stoneware clay. The piece fired for ~ 100 hours. It is a great example of a reduction close down on a woodkiln. Big, beefy and crusty.  

Anagama kilns are fired using an ancient technique used in Asia in the 5th century! 

My wood-fire pieces are literally one of a kind and simply can not be re-produced exactly even if I wanted to. The claybody, firing, wood used, placement in the kiln could all be replicated and the kiln would still choose to "glaze" and fire the piece differently.

The buildup of wood-ash throughout the firing melts and naturally glazes the pot. It gives this piece its beautiful, one of a kind, rustic finish!
