I make insects from clay...
steel wire hidden beneath the clay to form a single creation. The legs, antennas, are also made of clay, with a thin wire core. Each piece is formed and put together, glazed, and fired in one piece. The clay and wire
are fired together at a temperature of 1080 C. No Glue is used. Each insect is mounted on a Gallery frame, wood, measuring 28 x 28 centimeters.
I have been selling over 350 pieces a year since 2010 at galleries, museums, and through my website. Although they look fragile I send my work through the mail without an issue.
