Tusk - Foliage

Ceramic Sculpture

Created by Jeff Margolin
Rated 5 based on 1 customer reviews
This ceramic sculpture is an extraordinary exploration of form and surface decoration inspired by nature, traditional ethnic designs, and modern artists.

The artist begins by sculpting porcelain-type clay into an organic form with areas left for carving. The carved designs are drawn with a needle, carved out with blades, then cleaned with water and brush. When completely dry, the piece is sanded and burnished to a high sheen, then fired and smoked in a kiln. A semi-transparent pigment is applied to the carving for definition.
