Genie Sue Weppner - Shadow Boxes
My shadow boxes are 12”/12”/2” to 3”h. These are sawdust fired Terra Sigillata pieces. Sawdust firing involves burying pots in a can filled with sawdust, lighting the sawdust and covering the can so the pots are fired slowly in a reduction atmosphere. I have added colored mica to the Terra Sigillata to achieve subtle iridescent tones of color. Terra Sigillata is a surface treatment used by early civilizations which involves using clay slips and burnishing to achieve a shiny surface. I have used Spectracolor pencil to enhance the images on the blue and white pieces.
