Avery Roos | “Hand Built”

This media file is attached to: Ceramics / Sculpture / 3D Design

"Hand Built" is a ceramic piece made with hand building, and modeled after my left hand (hence the title). I used Dakota Red clay and three layered, colored glazes (names since forgotten), and the process took about two weeks. This piece was a personal artistic challenge, but in addition, the clay human form relates to how, even with modern developments, our inherited human crafts and activities were born from and will always depend on our vital natural resources.
