Using North Carolina clays, Yak skulls are sculpted individually then painted with porcelain slip. Dish is hand built and carved with subtle lotus design. Fired in a salt/soda wood kiln to 2400 degrees. 


This piece was inspired by traveling in the Himalayan region of China on a study abroad trip where I first saw many yaks and also yak skulls. Yaks are regal, suprisingly large, and very important animals to the Himalayan people who use them for transporting goods where no cars can travel and also for food sustanence. 


Dimensions: 6.5" tall x 9.25" wide
