Owl Beaver Jar 19” x 13”
Fred made the jar using local wild clay. He created the painting by playing with the idea of negative/positive space. He applied rice paper decals to build up pattern and color which enliven the painting. Carol then took the jar & embellished it even further by arranging her technicolor decals to compose a rich & vivacious surface. The jar was fired in a wood kiln, salt glazed. Across the shoulder of the jar is a luscious and dynamic orange peel texture formed the melting of salt and wood ash. The collaboration is exemplary.
