Red Eyed Tree Frog Lidded Jar on Striped Legs
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.
