Mother Nature and her Children

Mother Nature and her Children

For anybody wondering her children are the four elements

A panel in sculptural ceramic and mosaic

Mother Nature herself

The faces are in a stoneware body fired at 1300 C with oxide finish

This is Fire with a rather blistered appearance

Into some of the ceramics I have fused glass at 1300 C

The red mosaic represents fire reaching out, the round shapes with the glass water, the ceramic that the faces are made from earth and the background of small ceramic beads air

Part of the enjoyment in making was relationships between the forms


With a tile border the finished panel

Mother Nature and her Children The Four Elements
