Sculpture and ceramics
(1) "Ascending", Wood, stain and wax finish.
My very first wood sculpture project.
(2) "Wave", ceramic, Glaze: Satin white with a light spray of pearl black. Clay: B-mix, cone 10 reduction.
Inspired by the wood project. Clay is very forgiving. If the measurement is a little off, it's easy to fix. Wood requires more precision, it's more complicated. Maybe after a few years of experience, I will gain more confidence working with wood. It's definitely fun to work with different media.
It was supposed to be a sculpture piece. But I planned to use it in ikebana, I cut two openings for nageire.
(3) My first teapot attempt. I like geometric shape.
