Red Eyed Tree Frog Lidded Jar on Striped Legs
Created by Lisa Scroggins
This lidded urn is wheel thrown in two parts from low fire white earthenware clay. The artist added the 4 hand built legs to the bottom and a hand sculpted red eyed tree frog to the lid. Once dry, the piece is bisque fired to approx. 1850 degrees Fahrenheit. This piece is now a creamy white onto which she painted many layers of multicolored underglazes. Onto the urn Scroggins applied 5 layers of underglaze in a chestnut brown with light yellow triangles. The legs are banded in black and white. On the lid she painted 5 layers of a creamy light yellow underglaze and a black and white checkered band. The frog is painted in careful detail. A blue is glazed on the interior of the jar and lid. A clear, gloss glaze is applied over all. The artist's signature is on the bottom. The piece is kiln fired again. Limited edition of 50.
