  • Skull & Bone


    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 on seashells in an anagama for many days.

    The 12" porcelaneous stoneware bone was tumble stacked near the middle firebox.

    Skull measures 7"x 6"x 8".
