Stuck in the Mud

IMG_3245

A ceramic work that is part of a series about getting bogged and stuck in the Simpson Desert for 11 days,  3-13 September 2010. Alasdair Macfarlane drove over 12 kilos of Keane’s Stoneware33 clay wrapped in gladwrap.

IMG_3144I let the clay  dry for 2 weeks, then bisque fired, circa 1,000 degreesC. Painted  3x  glazes – Satin Black, Copper Red and Chun. Finally, Petra Svoboda, COFA ceramics, reduction fired the work in a gas kiln for 10 hours, circa 1280 degreesC. Big thanks  to COFA ceramic lecturers, Jacqueline Clayton and Julie Bartholomew, for advice and help on how to realise the work.
