Would you Like a Hand Green

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. As the clay is moulded over my right hand I had to make this with my left hand. This piece was dipped into white crackle glaze and the centre covered in partially reduced (to give metallic Copper) green glaze.

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.
