Pieced together like a patchwork farm quilt, this handmade stoneware pumpkin is a hodgepodge of torn up clay that I pieced together to create a personality of its very own. I also smashed the torn clay pieces into cheesecloth giving patchwork pumpkin scads of texture. Like me, I'll bet you can't keep your hands off it because it's so much fun to hold and touch.

The glaze on the leaves is acting somewhat like those old mood rings with the mood stone changing color. Sometimes the leaves cast off a beautiful turquoise color with just a hint of pale chartreuse. And sometimes it's a bright key lime color with just a hint of aqua blue and yellow. Sometimes the color is deep and rich and other times it's a smoky blend of pastels. No matter what color mood it's in, it's beautiful.

Patchwork pumpkin stands roughly 7-1/2 inches tall and 7-1/2 inches wide. I usually would stain the body of a sculpture like this in oxides to expose the detail of the nooks and crannies more, but didn't stain patchwork pumpkin to keep it soft and peaceful. The nice, quiet shadows created from the nooks and crannies are just the right amount of detail exposure so it doesn't distract from the overall art form.

Patchwork pumpkin is one of my favorite pieces that I've made. And, that's odd because I feel what generally keeps the artist in me creating is not being completely satisfied with the final outcome of a creation. Well, I've had two creations I felt I wouldn't change a thing to improve and Patchwork pumpkin is one of them.
