Featured Sculpture: Techno-Primitive II


This week I would like to feature a public/outdoor sculpture entitled, "Techno-Primitive II". It is the second of a series of two. They are both large-scale sculptures featuring giant ceramic "heads" in the middle of steel sprues. The ceramic heads feature many layers of different glazes, including a "top secret" glaze that I invented in order for the head to have a very textured surface.

This particular piece was on display in downtown Charlotte, NC for over a year as public sculpture, and the first piece of this series was featured in a group exhibit with my friend, former teacher, and world-renowned ceramicist Jun Kaneko (I will post this later).

Cat and I just spent this past weekend reshooting images of these two pieces for the website. Look out for my next featured art work next week!

Cheers! - RP
