Luna – Ceramic Egg on Driftwood.

An egg discovered in an unlikely place waiting to reveal itself.  Nestled high up with a pearly glow, this piece has me dreaming of a still clear moonlit night.  It is an absolute favorite of mine

The hollow ceramic egg was hand built, and fired in the “Naked Raku” technique with horse hair and feathers.  Afterwards, many pleasant hours were spent applying thin washes of color to accent and enhance the marks left by both horse hair and feather.  Afterwards, a sealant is applied, then the egg is waxed and polished.  It calls out to be touched.

The wood for this piece was found on one of my many beach walks near my home in Campbell River.  It has been carefully cleaned, sanded and carved to accept the egg, and hang securely on the wall…then waxed and polished.   The egg is cradled and nestled on the wood.

This piece measures approximately 24″ wide, 8″ high and 5 1/2″ deep.
