Kawai Tribute Series, Arc and Wing
Created by Jeri Hollister
Earthenware horse figure finished with black copper glaze, fired to cone 04 in an oxidation atmosphere. The work is constructed from extruded and thrown forms that are cut apart and reassembled in the wet stage. The glaze is removed from areas on the edges and surfaces of the piece to emphasize line and form, positive and negative space. One side of the work creates visual mass with arcs on the edge of curved forms and negative space, while the other side creates the mass with positive winged forms.
