Paperclay - Raku; seed pod-lowfire red, seeds-black polymer clay
6”H x 10”W x 10”D
American Museum of Ceramic Art,
Pomona 2006
One of my most pleasurable experience in working with paperclay is making a hand-pinched form and seeing how far and thin I can push this clay. In doing so, wonderful surface textures begin to from as the clay is stretched thiner and thinner.
This piece is titled “Cooperation 1” because each pod has only one foot. By itself it cannot stand, but by cooperating - three pods back to back - they form a very stable base. I've used a thin raku glaze to showcase its surface quality.
