Sculpture: Ceramic, Clay, Pottery on Ceramic.
A dapper dachshund in fine Sheriff dress. The pieces are coil built in grogged terracotta and are surface treated with engobe, slips and under-glazes. They are low fired at first and then heavily sanded and worked on further with washes, more under-glazes and glazes I want them to appear stoic and monumental; busts that have stood the test of time. The pieces are antique-like almost like rusty metal or wood, an uncovered relic to be displayed as if in a museum of the future. I can’t help but think these pets have some sort of authority complex after being carried around in handbags, like a sedan chair for dogs.
