Wizard with Baby Dragons

Description

The inspiration for this work was a chainsaw carving of a wizard and dragons hewn from a single tree trunk. With my work however, I can add colour by using glazes. The cloak and hat I used a mat glaze with dark speckles. The baby dragons peek out from under the wizards cloak and for them I used a gloss speckled glaze. Finally, Rutile oxide was carefully used on the beard and face.

About the Author
I’ve pursued many creative routes over the years but it wasn’t until 2013 that my love of clay really took hold. My work is hand built using a variety of techniques from slab building to pinching and coil construction, with each piece taking on its own unique form. Having been a wild gardener for over 20 years I’m inspired by nature and the changing seasons and this really influences the body of my ceramics work. I also like to surprise and delight with more humorous pieces. I find the physicality of moulding clay and the unpredictability of firing and glazing so exciting. It is this excitement that entices me back in to my studio each day. For more information about me, or to request a commission please get in touch.
