These figures are a recent departure, arising from a desire to have a “garden goddess”. Modelled on the format of terracotta deity figures or “murtis” I saw in the pottery village of Molela, southern Rajasthan, India, a few years ago. Made in pit-fired earthenware, stained with oxides and wax polished. Click on the thumbnail to see full size photo. They are about 16″ high by 7.5″ wide.
A series of small dishes (for butter, or soap,or a large candle), some ash-glazed jun with sgraffitto decoration through black slip, some wild splatter glazes, and one with a shiny high-silica cobalt glaze over a matt cobalt slip glaze with wax resist decoration.
