Flashpoint #01 Exhibition

Brick and Clay Display 1 - LS
Brick and Clay Display 3 - LS

Sunday was the opening of our Flashpoint exhibition. We took two days to plan and create a display along the side of the dragon kiln using bricks from the firing. The fired bricks had a dark burnt look. We used clay slip to paint some surfaces of the bricks to achieve a lighter background for our pieces.  The variation in height, brick colour and textures gave a simple yet naturalistic backdrop for our clay pieces.

That day, the clay artists were on hand to share our wood-firing stories and explain the wood-fired effects to our invited guests and visitors who happened to drop by at Thow Kwang.

How was this made?
