Ceramic robot with copper wire and wooden base
Sold By: Stefan Mager
Ceramic robot with soldered copper wire and polished wooden base.
This ceramic robot with soldered copper wire and polished wooden base presents an original one-off creation. Quite a lot of work goes into making it. In the first place I model the individual parts from terra cotta clay. Consequently they they need to dry for a couple of weeks. Now a low temperate biscuit firing follows. Consequently coloured glazes decorate the pieces. Now back into the kiln for the second high temperature firing. In the meantime I cut and polish the wooden base. I use salvaged timber from fallen farm tree branches. Once firing is concluded the parts are ready for assembly. Soldered copper wire holds them in place. These copper wires connect to the wooden base. In this way the ceramic parts firmly connect to the timber. The wires create a cage around the robot figure. Ultimately the structure becomes strong, elegant and resilient.
