STAPLE #3 (SOLD)
5.5 x 7 x 3 in.
This piece is an abstraction of the letter A; it also suggests an arch. The steel staples added at the bottom are fired into the piece and oxidize slightly in the firing process.
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.
