Just Under the Surface

So many things are just under the surface - lying in wait to appear at opportune moments. This is one of the rare pieces that I didn't have a title for until it was completed. The idea suggested itself as I thought about all the ideas that are waiting inside me.

This is another of the last cast stoneware masks. I used a shellac resist to wipe away layers of the greenware and then bisque fired it. The mask was then painted with a white engobe and fired again. The final glaze firing was raku.
