Burn

Porcelain molded into nearly 100 separate pieces, some glazed, all fired and painted with oxidizing paints and powdered pigments, then burned or scorched and coated with a polymer medium mixed with wood ash. 

The pieces are scattered randomly to mimic the forest floor following a devastating wildfire.

Porcelain molded into a partial tree trunk, a twig, leaf and bone, fired and painted with oxidizing paints and powdered pigments, then burned or scorched and coated with a polymer medium mixed with wood ash.
