The Kernal of a Thought

Ceramic Wall Sculpture

Created by Rod Hemming
This abstract wall sculpture is inspired from the shape of a kernel and the drawing starts from there into an abstraction of the seed in its shell. The dotted lines indicate its texture as it develops. The colors reflect warmth of the flavor. As it is ceramic, it is water resistant, making it perfect to also be displayed in a kitchen or bathroom. To create it, the artist first rolls a slab of clay, then it is bisque fires it at cone 04. Then, it is used as a blank canvas for painting with underglazes like a painting. The finished artwork is fired at cone 05. The handmade wood frame is 0.75"W and is included in the measurements below. The frame is also handmade by the artist. The framing is done to give it an antique Deco look.
