"Cloudy Mountain Range" #3 - ceramic sculpture by Suvira McDonald.

Depicting a distant mountain range, this sublime piece manages to convey both power and tenderness.

Suvira uses his mastery of firing and glazing to full effect in this piece, with shino and dry glazes melting onto the cloud covered peaks, and exposed, burnt orange and crackled white raku clay forming the mountain base.

It also works equally well when viewed from either side.

One of three similar works, it's beautiful on its own or stunning as a set. 

height: 14cm
width: 46cm
depth: 13cm

Nb. this is a hand made piece so measurements are approximate.

Raku clay.
Stoneware reduction firing
Handmade in Australia.

This is #3 of three works in the "Cloudy Mountain Range" series.

Suvira McDonald is a legendary potter based in Northern NSW.

His career spans more than 30 years, so evident in his lush, generous forms and glazes. Many pieces are wood fired in a Japanese style Anagama wood fired kiln.

Crackled, fire coloured glazes that look like the vessel is itself a glowing ember is a hallmark of McDonald's style.

Conversely, Suvira is extremely practised in all the languages of clay and glaze ... and is also known for his thick and glossy chun ware.

Each piece is like an artwork in it's own right and will become more loved the more you gaze at it, and the more they are used.
