Ceramic sculpture
“Grogzilla” sculpture clay,
Black Mountain sculpture clay,
Southern Ice porcelain paperclay.
Hi Fire, no glaze. Stainless steel rod, solid aluminum base.
7”W x 7”D x 17”H
Three different clay bodies are used in this piece, each with their own characteristics and color. I really enjoy how their colors play against one another. The outermost pod of  “Grogzilla” clay, is very rough and textured, and portrays our rough and protective exterior very well; the middle pod of Black Mountain sculpture clay shows how often people see the less noble side of their own kind; the innermost pod of Southern Ice porcelain paperclay captures the beauty and softness in all of us. Other than a light iron oxide wash on the “Grogzilla” clay, no glazes are used. The ascending heights of the inner pods are deliberate. The nested pods are mounted onto a solid aluminum base.
