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.
I love it< interesting composition.
Thanks Saida… am glad you like my works :-))
Really beautifull Dawn! This is a garanteed succes for your exhibition! It’s too far for me to travel “down under”…if closer I would certainly be there! Myriam
thanks Miriam… send the positive energy will be great… :-))
Very nice Dawn. I do love the colors you got from the firing.
hey Sylvia… thanks for the kind words, glad you like my works… i was also very happy with these results 🙂
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.
Thanks Jim… lovely words!!
beautiful indeed what the fire did and i expect it is each time a surprise how it turnes out in details.
Thanks Fran, yes it is different each time I do a pit firing, there are lots of variants involved.:-)
Lovely; reminds me of a jade ring, Chinese, possibly Chou dynasty, dia 4.5 inches, as appears in an old book published 1927…
Wow, thanks Celia… I do actually the surface you mean… i’ll have to ‘google’ it 🙂
Love it! You have inspired me. How long did your firing last?
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.
