Artist's description:

This is a concept piece that was created to try to portray the action of martyrs and has figures on wooden stakes surrounded by flamed around a tower topped with a orb which can be opened to place a 'T-light' or candle that allows the top to glow.

The main barrel was carved from a tube of clay and is mounted on a square base, the to orb that sits on top is coil construction and carved and pierced. All clay used is a slightly groged Spanish clay that when fired to stoneware is stained with the fumes from the copper red glaze, backgrounds have been enhanced with iron oxide.

As this piece has been fired to stoneware it can be place outdoors but would make a great talking piece in a hall or lounge.

Materials used:

Stoneware clay, glaze and oxides

'Martyrs' Stoneware Sculpture (2010)
