Ferric Ichirin
14" tall
Ichirin is Japanese for "wheel", the base form for this series. Celtic cross inspired designs are made with slip trails and incisions using various found objects. Ferric chloride is added to the white crackle glaze during the firing (DON'T try that at home) to give the iron-like finish. Each piece combines wheel thrown, slab, hand built, and extruded elements, and are very time intensive to make.
