The three-dimensional physical and technical manipulation of the clay was handled by Steven, and the two dimensional drawing and glazing by Susan. The piece was fired once beyond the bisque cone (05 1880 F), and post-reduced in a shallow pit lined with cardboard. It was then smothered by earth to contain the essential smoke which creates the gray and iridescent quality.
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.
