Title: “Last Tree Standing”
Overall Dimensions: 24x 10 x 7 in.
Technique: High fired stoneware, wheel thrown, altered, cut, reassembled and hand built; partially glazed, various stains and oxides, applied kiawe tree ash and electric fired in an oxidation atmosphere.
Subject / Inspiration: My work is often inspired by nature related themes. Every two seconds a forest the size of a football field is destroyed. At this pace, the deforestation of the world’s rain forests will vanish in 100 years which will greatly affect climate change and disruption to the ecological system.
