Jeanette Alsing, Truly Talented Ceramic Artist With Her Cute sculptures Art

So my mom is a truly talented ceramic artist and I’ve been told you would love her stuff.

Is it a bit much to say she’s truly talented? Well, you are the judge. But I think she makes stuff, that not many on the planet can. On Mother’s Day, I thought it fitting to showcase to the Internet just how awesome she is.

She makes ceramic sculptures, and most of them are raku. Raku is an exciting and demanding technique, that can reward some amazing textures in the clay.

She makes hippos, zebras, elephants, anteaters, tapirs… Well, she makes all kinds of animals, and they are always curvy, whimsical, cute, fun and full of character.

I’ve uploaded quite a lot of pictures, in a mixture of finished sculptures and from the crafting process. Enjoy! And if you do enjoy, you’re very welcome to follow her work on Instagram – she’d be delighted.

The sculpting process

The blackbirds sit on twigs hanging from a wire. Contrary to how it may seem, even they are all hand made and unique.

This is an early stage hippo. Still lots of work to be done. All of the sculptures are hollowed out before the firing. Otherwise, they will crack in the oven.

Spontaneous reduction in sawdust after the raku firing changes the colors immediately – very satisfying… well, if the piece survives!

Pre-fire, after glaze. The Zebra is painted with latex and then glazed. The latex covers the zebra and makes sure it’s not glazed, the stripes turn black when the sculpture is reduced in sawdust.

Just after the raku firing, the sculptures outer glaze flakes off, revealing the almost soft looking naked raku texture underneath.
