The Wicked Witch is Dead - Tornado Pot


The Wicked Witch Is Dead

This project was created as part of the Ceramic Arts Community forum: Community Challenge #2. The tornado implies form is the actual container intended for a plant. The entire work was thrown in three parts: the base/bowl, an angle tube/pipe, and the larger container. The small building and leg appendages were hand formed and attached prior to bisque firing. Finished height of the glazed piece is approximately 17".

Wow that came out better than anything I was expecting. I liked it before, but I like it even more now. Good Job! Show your son yet? BTW how was this fired? R or O?

Thank you.

Matt has not seen the finished piece yet...probably tomorrow.  This was fired Cone 10, reduction.

Just Looooove the striped tights! Really, Paul, you could sell the heck out of those, but if you do just one, it's ART!

I think this will have to fall into the 'art' category. Making several of these (or version thereof) is not on the radar right now.  I may change my mind if the piece is well received in the gallery...they certainly are not expecting something like this from me :)


And thanks so much for the kind words!,
