Air Plants and Ocean
Ceramic Wall Sculpture(ID: A31551)
Created by Phyllis PacinOne of a Kind
Raku fired hand-textured tile wall sculpture. "Air Plants and Ocean" is made of parallelogram-shaped tiles that Pacin rolled by hand. Before she cut large slabs of clay into individual tiles, she textured the slabs with many different objects including a meat tenderizer, chrome trim from a car (Kammback) and a printed circuit board. Like snowflakes, no two tiles are alike. The raku firing process creates iridescent luster glazes and velvety blacks to highlight the colorful glazes. This two part piece is one of an ongoing series of abstract depictions of land and/or water masses. The colors vary from to reds and purples to bluish water colors and bright luster greens.
