Sculpture description:
Raku fired Ceramic sculpture. Raku is a traditional Japanese firing technique, hand molded pottery is removed from the hot kiln and is allowed to cool in the open air or in a container filled with combustible material. This results in crackle glaze structure, black surfaces where clay has been exposed to smoke. Color transitions where heat reduction of elementals such as copper change from bronze, red, blue and green. The result of Raku firing is irregular, rustic, producing `one of a kind`, expressing the notion of `wabi-sabi` a Japanese aesthetic.
Artist's comments:
Inspired by the geometric pattern known as the `flower of life`, Interlacing circles of the same diameter forming a flower pattern with a sixfold symmetry. The center of each circle being on the circumference of the surrounding circles. It is said to depict the fundamental forms of space and time. A visual expression of the connections woven through life and all sentient beings.
