Quite some time ago, I made a whimsical Fish Dish with multiple fins, elaborate tail, gills, scales, big lips and eye. Multiple carving tools were used to create texturing and crevices. Cobalt Blue Oxide was applied for highlighting the various features, red iron oxide was used on the lips. Celedon glaze was brushed on. (Hand-built from High-Fire Porcelain, dimensions are 7″ x 4″)
A few months later, this same Fish Dish was cloned, and became something entirely unexpected. That is, my niece created a beautiful 2-D image of this Fish Dish, somehow transforming it into a piece of framed artwork. My niece is not divulging the techniques for making this beautiful image, although there appear to be some watercolor elements. All I know is — somehow my work was transformed into something else which can be considered to be true art. I love this piece times two!
