Description

Title: Puia Pupuhi, Bubbling Volcano V, Raku Earthenware fired NZ red clay with glaze reduction by Karen Wilde, 2022.
Size: 6.5×10.5cm

The price indicated is for the ONE shorter piece as shown in images 1-5 (the last image is a group shot of the entire series of 6, being sold individually).

These Bubbling Volcano sculptures were pulled red-hot from the raku kiln and transferred to a firey reduction chamber with combustibles. This produces unpredictable surface colours and glaze patterns while leaving smokey scorched marks on the raw clay areas.

Experimental processes of including both inorganic and natural organic materials to the clay body, glazes and firing process result in every piece displaying unique surface textures. This series depicts heavy blue and green hues with metallics, charcoal grey, milky off-white crater/lava glaze and raw clay “kissed by fire”.

Inspired by Aotearoa New Zealand’s native bush and snow-capped volcanic mountains. Each piece in this series is handbuilt from layers of clay and original in both shape and finish. Can be used as an incense burner/candle/LED light cover, baseless dried flower vase or mini pot plant cover.*

*Lights/incense/candles/flowers NOT included. This sculpture does not have a base.
