This is my piece in the show, titled "Terra Nova."
All you need is a nice pedestal and great lighting to show off your work! Of course, I say this in jest; yet, there is truth in it. It is amazing how a professional presentation sets off your work and elevates it to an entirely different world.
Here are the different clays and materials used in this piece:
• Sculpture paperclay
• Southern Ice Porcelain paperclay
• Black Mountain sculpture clay
• Black Mountain potters clay
• "Grogzilla" high grogged clay
• Sculpture paperclay mixed with rice
• Flashing slip
• Feldspar crystals
• Manganese dioxide
• Red Polymer clay
• Natural red seeds
Many of the "pods" were scavenged from an earlier piece that had been fired to Cone 10 reduction and did not turn out well. I "recycled" them into this piece. No glazes were used.
