Title: Red Speckled Vase with 6 Handles

Year of Creation: 2013

Glaze: Brushed commercial & artist glazes, matte, metallic lustre effects cone 5 oxidation

Clay Body: Mid-range stoneware

Artist's Statement: The materials are what attract and inspire me. I envision lava flowing, crystals growing and flowers blooming. Earth, air, fire and water... minerals reacting with one another like when the earth was being formed.

This was a simple barrel shape taken off the wheel then altered by stretching and pushing in stages. It grew like a pumpkin.
