Balanced Time, Tribute Series
Created by Jeri Hollister
Earthenware horse figure is finished with black copper glaze, and red iron and white slip, fired to cone 04 in an oxidation atmosphere. The earthenware clay body provides a fourth color. The horse is developed from the ground up, while the clay is in the wet stage. The work is constructed from extruded and thrown forms that describe musculature and gesture through positive form and open space.
