This large ceramic wall disc is a convex form, emerging from the wall and giving dimension to the etched poppies and hummingbird.
Done in my "woodcut" style technique, each mark was carved through black underglaze into the surface, giving further dimension to the images, texture and pattern.
After the etching, washes of color were applied and the piece was bisque fired. The next step was a layer of transparent glaze and the final firing, giving the piece a sparkling presence inspired by a sunlit field of poppies.
The back of the piece is fitted with a custom wood form, felt and French cleat. It is ready to hang.
Size: Approx. 20" x 20" x 3"
