Teach Us To Think

A totem pole for your wall, this ceramic collage is made of stoneware shards mounted to a poplar “stick”. The shards are covered with black slip, then carved in the sgraffito technique. Color is carefully inlaid before it is fired to 2167 degrees F. Finally the shards are mounted to a poplar “stick”, with bumpers at the bottom to protect your wall.
