Grungy Bolt Mouth"
This little guy came out great. He was a test for a grungy, crusty, rusty glaze
and has lots of texture and nice metallic highlights.
make some small jugs to test different glazes and design ideas before using them
on a big jug. Some turn out nice and some don't but it saves me wasting a large
piece. I know that some of you have miniature collections so I will offer some
here from time to time. I decided I would number them as I went. I Don't ecpect
a large number of these to be produced.They take just about as much time as a
larger jug. Check back for more.
I spent the last 7 years doing junk sculpture
so this guy is kind of a natural extension of that process except he is made of
clay pieces instead of metal.
He stands 6 1/2 " tall and is 4" wide. He is made of high-fire stoneware
and the glaze is handmade by me . The interior is glazed with a food safe lead
and Process: Hand thrown and sculpted stoneware, and high fire glaze. Refired
for luster glazes.
Signed: Yes. Artist signed,
numbered and dated with the year produced.
Entirely handmade using no molds.Each jug is an original. Comes with a
Certificate of originality.
