Title: Two Hens and Three Eggs
Size: 1.25″h x 10″d
Light and Shadow: I am focusing on how light and shadow play on the surface of this decorative (and functional) serving plate. Using techniques like incising, raised slip trailing and brushwork give the illusion of the hens parading through a grassy yard.
Hand thrown stoneware, reduction fired at ^ 10.
