Protector – Egg on Driftwood

Categories: ,

A beautiful little egg on driftwood that seems to have an animal like form, carrying the egg safely on it’s back.  The ceramic egg is hand built and fired in the “Naked Raku” technique.  A sword fern has left it’s delicate markings.  Afterwards, the surface of the egg is enhanced with many thin washes of color before being sealed, waxed and polished.

A hole in the bottom of the egg fits securely over a pin inserted into the wood.

The driftwood was found on the beach near my home in Campbell River.  It has been carefully cleaned, sanded, and carved to both hold the egg, and sit firmly on the table.  Finally it has been stained, waxed and polished.
