This one is a favorite. I especially like his hat. Hand sculpted out of stoneware clay and twice fired. This is one happy Joker with some set of teeth. Joker measures 12" X 9". He'll cheer up the place, that's for sure. Ready to hang in your house, office or yard. Signed and dated.

This is the process:
This mask is sculpted out of stoneware clay. As the clay mask is drying some clean up takes place. Several days later when the mask is throughly dry it is Bisque fired. This takes about 13 hours and another day before the kiln can be opened. If it makes it through this firing without blowing up, the next step is (in this case) to paint on an oxide and then wipe it off. This highlights the recesses. Next some glazing and then back into the kiln for the really hot firing (2285 degrees). This firing is only 8 hours and again another impatient day of waiting until the kiln is cool enough to open. Sometimes there are pieces that come out as you hoped and then some come out not so good. The sad ones can sometimes be salvaged by another application of glazes or oxides and high fired again....hoping for the best. So you see, considering the time from start to finish, we're talking 7+ days and a lot of electricity. Phew, but we clay crazy people love to play in the mud.
