For this unique sculpture, the artist uses the boat as a metaphor for our life's journey. Each stoneware boat is individually hand-built from slabs and has a bird pinched from clay perched on its bow. The carved waves are painted with slips and terra sigillatas made by the artist. The weathered surface is achieved by applying a semi-matte glaze then wiping the highlights of the texture to leave behind glaze that has a flashing quality. Metal pedestal included. Each piece is unique and will vary.
