3 weeks ago

Lot No. :SF-210709
Overview:Contemporary art. Raku Pottery, size 13”W x 11 ½”H. This bowl was was formed in a personally thrown bisque mold and the base was thrown on the wheel. The fossil imagery was inspired by fossils found in his childhood. After the bowl was fired in the bisque kiln and cooled, he applied special glazes before it was raku fired. The colors and the crackle are dependent on the amount of oxygen granted during the raku firing and cooling. His glaze recipes are all his own, which to him, makes the work more personal and more intimate. This is a great piece to add to any collection and complements various interior settings.
Status:For Sale (Item is customizable)
