Wheel-thrown and altered. After drying, the piece was sprayed with copper and iron wash. It was fired only once with propane to about cone 01 (2000 F), at which time sodium bicarbonate was introduced into the kiln. The sodium reacted with the iron and the copper, creating a rich and varied surface somewhere between salt glazing and raku. The piece was then post-reduced in newspaper to bring out the painterly, layered surface.
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
