Wheel thrown porcelain vessel is altered and pierced. The Elephant is sculpted and carved using white stonware. Glazed with oxides, microcrystalline, and ash glazes, then fired in oxidation to cone 6.
This piece was truly delightful to make. Many of my animals are serious and quiet in gesture so I created this elephant and its vessel to have a playful gesture while remaining elegant. The censer is glazed on the interior and can be used to burn incense, for a candle, or simply to enjoy as a sculpture.
Dimensions: 10.5" tall x 3.5" wide
