GREEN MOUND #3
10.5 x 9 x 5 in.
Another in the series of pieces based on abstractions of letters of the alphabet. Although this piece began as a B, it also suggests an A. The glaze on this piece is formulated to bead or crawl, so the underlying colored clay surface can be seen.
All of the clay components are slab-constructed terracotta, finished in low-fire oxidation. Each piece is fired at least twice. The unique surfaces are generated by means of layering: of multiple glazes or glazes applied over liquid clay slips. Other materials are noted where used. All dimensions are height x width x depth.
