Fran Johnson Nagy

Birmingham, Alabama, USA

Title: Cloaked in Lava

Year of Creation: 2011

Glaze: Horse hair on natural clay body, oxides, hand waxed

Clay Body: Stoneware

Dimensions: Height 9.5 inches, Width 5 inches

Artist's Statement: The carbon markings of the horse-hair have defined this theme, a connection between earth and the human. Utilizing the white clay body as a canvas with the natural tones of the oxides and the blackness from the carbon translate this "nurturing" idea into a dramatic visual voice.
