Wire brushed it and then "tempered" the metal pieces with a propane torch. The metal is attached to the wood behind with a 1/4" elbow and "floats" about a 1/4" in front of the clay piece... Looks a lot more 3D than the picture.

I have been doing ceramics for about ten years now, mostly as a hobby. I like to incorporate metal and gemstones into my pieces which I electroform. I develop my own glazes and try to keep to a waxy or semi-mat finish. I like the "arts and crafts" look and the subdued glazes they used on their pieces. Fire mostly to cone 5-6
Lately I have been working more on combining ceramics, metal, wood and even weavings into sculptural pieces.
