Tribute Series, Water Strider
Created by Jeri Hollister
Earthenware horse figure is finished with black and turquoise copper glazes, fired to cone 04 in an oxidation atmosphere. The work is constructed from extruded and thrown forms that describe musculature and gesture through positive form and open space. The horse is developed from the ground up, while the clay is in the wet stage. The turquoise copper glaze becomes fluid over the metallic black copper glaze at the hottest point of the firing process.
