Title: Aihikirīmi Āniwaniwa, Rainbow Ice-cream
Ceramic, stains, natural slip and raku glaze, 2022.
Weight: (solid, heavy piece)
This piece has various underlining themes around climate conditions, exploration of sea caves or rock formations during Wilde’s kayak expeditions, and a colourful throwback to her favourite New Zealand, childhood Ice-cream: Rainbow Paddle Pops.
The blue raku glaze has been purposely over-fired to produce watery drips into detailed crevices, pooling in sections.
