Tricolor Reduction Series, Icelandic Horse
Created by Jeri Hollister
This series of small horse studies is constructed from slabs of stoneware clay assembled in the wet stage. The sculpture is finished with black and turquoise glaze and white slip, and fired to cone 10 in a reduction atmosphere. The bare clay becomes a toasty brown in the reduction atmosphere, adding a fourth "color" to the sculpture. The goal of the series is to create volume and gesture using form and negative space.
