Winged Vessel #4
This brilliantly colored raku pottery sculpture was built by hand using a thrown bisque mold and torn slabs of clay. Once it was removed from the mold, the pieces were altered and texturized. This vessel is chemically bonded to a base that is also made from torn slab.
The colors derive from the handmade glazes and underglazes that I use. One thing I love is to be constantly looking for new structures, textures and glazes to create. Each of my glaze recipes is proprietary, which makes the work more personal and more familiar. These homemade glazes are then poured, painted and/or sprayed on my raku pottery until I am satisfied with the combination of colors and textures. 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. To see more available raku sculpture including more winged vessels like this please click here.
