6 x 7 x 2.5 in
The small hand-curved loops are fired into place.
This piece was constructed by making an enclosed form into which a cut is made; a clay slab is draped into that opening and joined. The kanthol wire is fired into the piece and painted post-firing.
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.
