These pieces created with sculpted wood start with hardwood lumber. They are cut and then sculpted with a power rasp. The wood is sanded until a very smooth surface is achieved and the wood's hidden beauty is revealed. The clay is then formed to complement the wood. As the clay dries, the clay and wood are separated so that it can be fired. After the clay is fired, the wood is permanently attached with a lifetime adhesive.
Upon discovering a uniquely-shaped piece of scrap wood, Jacque fine-tuned the form, and paired it with a pit fired ceramic vessel. She then added an unconventional sense of balance at the base. Pit firing gives the unique flash marks from the fire. The inset texture is glazed. Wood is cherry.
