slab-constructed terracotta, steel staples
Inspired by a hand-held implement, this piece has steel staples that were inserted before 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.
