Winged Vessel #4
This brilliantly colored winged sculpture was hand built using a thrown bisque mold and torn slabs of clay. Once it was removed from the mold, it was altered. This particular raku piece sits on a base that is also made from torn slab..
The colors come from handmade glazes and underglazes. One thing I love is to be constantly looking for new forms and glazes to create. I develop all of my glaze recipes, which makes the work more personal and more intimate. The glazes are then sprayed, poured and/or painted on the pieces until I am happy with the combination of colors and textures. The body of this raku vessel is epoxied to the base. The body and the base are both raku fired.
This particular piece is one in a series of "winged" raku sculptures that add a unique and colorful dynamic to any home decor project. To see more available raku sculpture including more winged vessels like this please click here.
