  • Miracle Skull


    This skull was thrown on the potters wheel of NZ clay. 

    When it hardened up a little, I used a harp wire tool to carve out the shape. 

    Then I fashioned teeth with a fettling knife.

    It was fired upside-down in an anagama for many days.

    A Miracle of the woodfire ash was repairing a cracked upper mandible by fusing the pieces together from the outside.

    Skull measures 6"x 6"x 9".
