Paper Clay

for sale

Madonna is the first large paper clay sculpture I made. She is slab construction. She has been multiple fired, first with stains, then with reduction raku glazes in a gas kiln fired in oxidation, then pit fired.

I am especially pleased with the relationship of the surface treatment swirls in her belly to the abstracted shape of her figure.
