Close-up. Ceramic wall sculpture Synergy by Michelle Maher. Shown here at Sculpture in Context 2015 at The National Botanic Gardens. Inspired by a shoreline in the Burren, Co. Clare, Ireland. The synergy of soft & hard, water & rock, stillness & rage, light & shade is the inspiration for the piece. Hand sculpted and modelled in a crank stoneware clay & electric fired to 1260°C. This blue-green glaze combines multiple layers of glazes which at stoneware temperatures melt and ‘flux’ to create a stunning ceramic surface. The glaze is ‘reactive’ and responds to the folded surfaces in the clay – making each piece completely unique. www.ceramicforms.com
