Flight is a sculpture formed with buff clay. It consists of about three hundred hand built birds, the form gradually changes from the egg into a birds in full flight. It was inspired by the group flight of starlings known as murmerations and its meaning reflects the growth of a person through their life as they learn who they are and gain the ability to fly proudly into their future.

 

I used a glossy white glaze and copper oxide addition to complete the finish.

Selection of little bird glaze tests, they are dressed in their finest oxides and underglazes with glaze overcoats.
