After a hectic weekend dealing with my Open Studio, I am back at working with my mythic shrines and Masked Gods.
This is Phoenix, and she’s made from glazed and smoke fired ceramics. The shrine is made from blow torched wood. I like the way that the green copper oxide I used to paint the leaves turned red in the smoke firing.
This is the Pheasant God, residing in his shrine. The body is glazed with Botz Spiegel glazur and the head has got a bronze finish. I used Botz brush on glazes for the mask. The entire sculpture is 46 cm high and 24 cm wide.
This is Eagle; a bit worried looking, I think. The shrine is 52 cm high and the wood has been treated with plaster, blow torched and waxed. The sculpture has a mixture of bronze finish effects and Botz glazes.
This is as far as I’ve got to at the moment but there are many more waiting in the wings….
