Pond Bug by claynfiber
This little guy walks on water!
He is stoneware clay; hand built and left naked except for oxide that highlights his body marks. His copper wire feelers can be twisted and moved about as his mood dictates; or your's!
The pond he walks on is glazed in variegated blue/teal/brown; is irregular in shape; measures 2.75" in length. The bug stands 1.5" and if measured to the height of antennae he is over 1.75".
My passion for clay and fibers is matched by my passion for animals and the environment. I often symbolically incorporate recycled materials into my art and a portion of all sales is donated to animal charities.
