Cosmic Ring Swing 25" x 25". Experimenting with some new colors and design concept Josh painted each of the raised rings a different colors in each of the 9 tiles creating a swirling effect. Over 10 colors used.
Super Nova is 31" x 31". The ring around the edges are actual holes going through the clay. So you could say this super nova is see through to other universes! I glazed this pieces after looking at wallpaper designs. Using looping gestures to create the lines and filling in the loop spaces with every color in my studio. A wonderful effect.
Hex Nebula has many optical illusions to it. (How many shapes can you find?) It was fired multilple times to get the finished glaze effects. The piece is 43" x 32" and is available to purchase for $1320. Contact Josh if you are interested in more info.
Steamer Planet is a dimensional, 36" round Cosmic. Multiple bas relief textures ripple through the piece.
Cosmic Compression was created by adding multiple glazes compressed next to each other in thick rows. The colors blend a little with each other but hold their form. When firing in the kiln, the glazes melt together to create auras, new color blends and fabulous patterning.
Nova Planet is made up of 32, 6" x 6" textured tiles, with 1 inch between each piece. The inspiration for this work was aerial photography and space images.
Ripple Planet is 32" x 32". It is made using impressions pressed into the surface, creating a rippling bas-relief effect through the piece.
