Fortitude

by Laura Huertas

 

“My name is Laura Huertas from Santa Fe, nm.  The piece is stoneware clay.  I fired it in a Raku kiln with a clear crackle glaze.  After the piece is removed from the kiln with tongs at 1900 degrees it’s placed in an aluminium can full of newspaper.  The newspaper catches fire, creating a lot of smoke, you put the lid on as it’s smoking.  The dark cracks you see is smoke filling in cracked glaze.  I used a tool for the stitching.  This series exemplifies resilience.”
