LITTLE Cs, GRAY
10 x 12 x 5 in.
kanthol wire, wood base
Abstractions of the letter C, these pieces have kanthol wire inserted before firing, a design element that also suggests handles. The hand-made base is birch plywood finished with milk paint.
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.
