Two Birds in the Sky Bowl

Ceramic Sculpture

Created by Lisa Scroggins
This piece is wheel thrown in two parts and then assembled. The two birds are hand sculpted, positioned, and added on. They are carved and positioned to look like they are in slight motion. Once bisque fired, the piece is painted in five layers of color. The interior is painted in a very painterly style with the swirling clouds full of motion. There is a crisp black and white checked border detail in the interior of the bowl with the clouds breaking the border in areas to add depth to the design.

The birds featured are an indigo bunting and a gold finch. They are painted in realistic colors and patterning. The exterior is a deep ultramarine blue, and white spirals are carved at the base of the bowl. The stem and foot of the bowl are black and white. The piece is finished with four layers of clear gloss glaze.
