The question arises: should we hold on to that which is falling away or let it go and expose what is underneath?
This small prototype is made of stoneware and was fired multiple times with engobes, glazes, pencils and china paints. The final firing was raku to give the piece a bit of smoke. I added some brass nails to finish the look.
The piece measures 3 1/4" high by 1 3/4" wide (83mm x 45mm) and is ready to wear as a pendant or to display.
