Rainbow Warrior is a coiled piece made from white earthenware clay, which stands approximately 29cm high x 20cm in diameter. It has been coiled then bisque fired to 1160c. Coloured glaze has been applied in rainbow stripes and fired to 1080c. A final layer of paint has been added and heated to a temperature of 150c to add brighter colours. When the glazing process has been completed nails, red wire bits and ruby ear studs have been glued to the piece. Inspired by a new series of armoured work, this work continues to take the pieces away from ceramics and into fine art. It sits on three glass feet knotted with all sorts of wire and is signed and dated by the artist 2006.
