Dark Blue/Green and White Ceramic Cockerel Sculpture
This is a hand built, and hand thrown rustic ceramic cockerel sculpture, made from high fired white earthenware clay. The base and legs are thrown on the potters wheel, the main body is handmade using flat coils of clay, and the claws are hand modelled. Once the body has been built, its pierced to allow ambiant light to interact and bring him to life. When the body and legs of the cockerel are leather hard, they’re joined together and allowed to dry before bisque firing.
The cockerel is decorated with a silky white glaze with a blue and green drip decoration. It has a gold luster beak and one gold nail.
