HMS No. 7 WIP Primal.jpg

This work in progress is an incised wall piece. It will be No. 7 in the Hidden Mask Series, titled "Primal". The base glaze is black engobe; the overlays are cobalt, merlot, clear, and a deep yellow matte. It is the cultural appropriation of a tribal vibe infusing a Caucasian selfie. The clay body is Sheffield's Raku, but the planned invitational raku firing is not going to happen, thanks to COVID 19, so I'll use an electric kiln. 

Ready for a second firing; the "red" is iron-rich glazes-they will not fire red. One is a coppery brown and the other is a matte gray/blue.
