Would you Like a Hand Blue

Raku ceramic

The hand symbol has been used in art since ancient times for example hand prints found in cave paintings. I was intrigued at how a rectangular piece of clay distorted when I inserted a hand form into it. This piece was dipped in white crackle gaze, partially dipped in turquoise, copper based glaze which cooled in an oxidising environment and the dark blue is from Cobalt.

Whilst great care has been taken to try and realistically represent the artwork's colour hue, contrast, etc. it is impossible to accurately reflect the physical work of art using a computer monitor / screen.
