Rising from the Ashes 6 :A Decorative Raku Pottery Piece by Steven Forbes-deSoule

1 month ago

Lot No. :SF-211209
Artist:Steven Forbes-deSoule *
Overview:Contemporary art. Raku Pottery, size 24" H x 18 1/2"W. This decorative raku pottery piece was hand built in his studio near Asheville, NC. After bisque firing, different underglazes and proprietary glazes were sprayed, and poured on the piece before it was raku fired. It's chemically bonded to the base for stability. Using copper, silver, cobalt and chrome in his glazes gives his raku pottery the most abundant features. When these metals melt in the firing, they leave some dramatic results. He may also use the glazes to strengthen the underlying design or texture of my raku pottery. The colors of the glaze and the crackle depend on the amount of reduction allowed during the raku firing and cooling.
Status:For Sale (Item is customizable)
