In the photo above Jeff is glazing a sculpture. This sculpture is sitting on a kiln shelf and some boards, all of which are on a pneumatic lift so that the heavy piece and kiln shelf can be lined up and slid into our front-loading kiln for firing.

The sculpture glazed and loaded into our gas kiln, ready for firing to cone 10 in a reduction atmosphere.

The kiln has been successfully fired and the piece slowly cooled. The finished sculpture is ready to be slid back out onto the pneumatic lift and rolled into the studio. It will be in Jeff’s show.

Jeff Reich, Agave Field, glazed stoneware, 16 x 16 x 9”, 2014

Gallery statement:

This bowl is glazed in the colors of moonlight. A desert hawkmoth, its head buried in the pollen-laden, beautiful white flower of a Queen of the Night cactus, gathers nectar as it concurrently pollinates the flower. This occurs amidst intertwining cactus branches and egg clusters. The drifting watch alludes to biological time, the playing card to chance and random odds, while the eggs, flower and pollination refer directly to fertility and regeneration.

Farraday Newsome (glaze) and Jeff Reich (wet clay), Queen of the Night, glazed terra cotta, 3.5 x 11.5 x 11.5”, 2007

A bowl made collaboratively  by Jeff Reich (wet clay) and Farraday Newsome (glazing) will be on display at Tohono Chul Park Gallery’s upcoming exhibition In Full Bloom. The show will run February 19 through April 24, 2016. http://tohonochulpark.org/upcoming-events/
