A key piece in the Throwndown at the Hoedown Series ,this is the best Leviathan I have made yet. This piece has a wonderful, intense presence. Silent, gentle but uncompromising. Smoke-firing is very unpredictable but on this piece the smoke has set itself deep into the clay with un-canny, subtle perfection.

Antarctic Leviathan is the first polar Leviathan in the series and an important step in the on-going Aquasphere section.

The Aquasphere

It is changes with water that cause the most upheaval to the Biosphere. Water holds centre stage in the atmosphere’s massive weather events. More often than not it is at the forefront of dramatic episodes in the lithosphere: mud-slides, sink-holes, erosion and sometimes the provocation of volcanos.

Water takes so many forms: flowing (fresh and salt), vapour, ice. Each has a range of characteristics. The primary character is the Leviathan but there are many others involved.

Sculpture Care

Set on a black ceramic base this piece is smoke-fired ceramic. It is not frost proof as smoke-firing requires a low-fired, porous ceramic and the soft, beautiful colours, which go right into the clay, will change if it is left in bright sunlight. It is finished with white mineral oil and you can wash the piece in hot soapy water to remove dust and grime and then apply more mineral once it’s thoroughly dry (this will take a few days) if you would like to bring out the colours more.
