Finished Pit Fired Sculptures…

Two of the completed sculptures from the sawdust and pit firing: much pain later!! Very happy with the colour results and the assemblage of the pieces, though difficult with an injured finger, has turned out really well :-)) All the work is now complete for the exhibition (pics to come), including painted plinths! First thing in the morning delivery to Gallery on Sturt , then off to the doctors to assess the stitched up finger.

  5. Surface has a waxy appearance, sort of fleshy that is supported well by the color giving depth to or even below the surface, a translucency that is very engaging. The support rod tends to provide an opaque standard for comparison. Nice! I’d love to see more.

  7. Lovely; reminds me of a jade ring, Chinese, possibly Chou dynasty, dia 4.5 inches, as appears in an old book published 1927…

  8. Love it! You have inspired me. How long did your firing last?

  9. Hi Louise, glad to be of inspiration!! The firing itself takes a few hours, then is covered up & takes about 18-24 hours to cool.
