Not from around here?

August 2, 2011

This wall piece is approximately 11 wide x 11 high x 3 in deep. The materials are porcelain, a super groggy dark stoneware sculpture body and glaze. It was reduction fired in a gas kiln to cone 10. I love how the grog turned that nice toasty tan, contrasting with the dark reddish brown of the rest of the sculpture body. The Shaner White glaze in the crevices adds a nice sparkle to the raw porcelain. Yum!
