From "A Changed World" Series. The narrative depicts a blue bird flying through a birch forest with a stack of parchment ready to be drawn upon.
Hand painted with multiple layers of underglaze, it takes 6 layers to create the background blends and an additional 5-10 layers for any over laid colors. Painted on bone dry clay, fired to cone 04 and clear glazed.
A note from the artist: "This body of work is especially important to me as the details, craft and imagery represent the best work I have done to date. The more intimate scale of this body of work takes more time to paint and carve because it requires more precision in my brushwork and use of the wet sgraffito technique. I have to admit that I’m a little in love with the entire body of work."
"I think of each piece from this body of work as a treasure that will reveal itself to the viewer slowly over time."
