I'm looking at adding a section to the bottom to raise the piece up higher for visual interest.
The piece as been fired to Cone 10 oxidation. The exterior color is the natural color of the sculpture paper clay, Gault 10 PClay from Aardvard. I'm entertaining some interesting ideas for the exterior surface of the pod.
The inside details are from my R&D with dipping coffee filters in paper clay slip (Southern Ice porcelain), and fired to Cone 5 oxidation.
The inside surface of the pod is coated with Black Mountain paper clay (home made) and feldspar crystals. At Cone 10, the feldspar crystals "pop" and you can see them quite clearly. No glazes used. Present height 28"H.
