Natures Blessing

"Natures Blessing"... On its way to Goddard Center's juried exhibition.
It was hand built, from wild mud, coated with Terra Sigillata, buffed and saggar fired. No glaze is used.
This is from a greater body of work I'm calling, "Oklayhoma". The pieces will all be made from wild mud, hand dug and processed in Oklahoma. My goal is to use native materials, processes and alternative firing methods to produce a contemporary body of sculpture, marrying the ancient and the modern. This first series is under the subheading "Red River Narrative" this series will be comprised of pieces made from materials sourced within 50 miles of the Red River.
