Stoneware 'Get Ready' figurine

Stoneware 'Get Ready' figurine


This stoneware sculpture is of a man ready to jump into something.  A lake perhaps? by Folk House tutor and Potter, Margaret Crump


It's toes are slightly curled over the edge, so it makes an ideal sculpture for a high bookshelf, a bathroom window sill or even a garden wall?

Margaret modelled this sculpture from a textured stoneware clay


After it's first firing, Margaret rubbed an oxide into it in order to warm up the surface; it was fired a second time to 1280 degrees centigrade
