Winged Dog in Black

Ceramic Sculpture

(ID: A87410)
Created by Cathy Broski
Celebrate a beloved friend, or an extraordinary accomplishment with this winged dog, inspired by the artist's own pet, Porter. The artist uses wings as a symbol of freedom, and a metaphor of having risen above any one of life's hurdles.

Each dog starts as a series of clay cones and cylinders. As they are assembled, the pose emerges. The surface is smoothed then textured. After the first firing, glaze is applied and then selectively wiped away to create a worn look.

The wings are made from porcelain, and attached before firing. A special process using real feathers and a porcelain slip give the wings a distressed or weathered look. The cracks that naturally occur in this process are filled with an epoxy and do not continue through the entirety of the wing. Due to these techniques each piece will very in color and texture. Each piece is made individually by the artist.

Comments about Winged Dog in Black:

I lost my black lab a few years ago. She had such a loving, generous spirit, and I miss her every day. Had I been able to create something to honor her, this would be it. It brings me such joy, and I thank you.
