his abstract sculpture which reminds several friends who have seen it of a horse and rider, was inspired by lingbi, or chinese scholar stones or viewing stones. I made this out of stoneware ceramic clay and fired in the kiln to cone 6. I finished it with a medium bronze/brass tone with black underneath, it gives a very nice bronze look to the piece. This piece is 14 inches tall, 17 inches long and about 4 inches deep. It developed a crack that I repaired, sometimes larger sculpture do this in the kiln, but you have to really really inspect it before you can find it, in fact you would never see it if you weren't looking for it.
