Moon Gazing Hare Sculpture - bronze glazed ceramic

 

The first picture shows the hare sculpture in the process of being modeled in clay. It is then dried and fired in an electric kiln to 1000C.

 Bronze glaze is  applied by hand to the surface of the hare sculpture. The animal sculpture is refired to 1260C.

This changes the clay to a hard material known as stoneware. The glaze becomes changed into a bronze surface that has subtle changes of colour and texture.

It is a quite unique fine art sculpture.

Size 37cms high.

This characteristic pose is typical of Brian Hollingworth's work; the little detail of the experts knowledge, that adds so much to the sculpture.

Size 30cm high. Additional pictures available on request

brown bear

Young Brown Bear

 This small bear sculpture is from a series of bear animal sculptures made by Brian Hollingworth as part of an experimental series.

 He was looking for glazed ceramic work that could give the appearance of the depth of fur grown in winter,

 By applying layers of glaze, he discovered that the effect he wanted could be achieved. This delightful sculpture has to be actually seen to appreciate the quality of the surface.

Brian kept this piece for his own collection, but now that his interest is in the bronzed surfaces he can now achieve, it is now available for sale.

Price £165         Size 14 cm high 24 cm wide

 

sitting bear sculpture

 Sitting Black Bear

The black bear is found all over North America,  being the most common bear. In the sculpture the bear is seen sitting head slightly tilted looking across to the left. The surface texture suggests the heavy fur, but at the same time indicates the basic anatomy beneath.

The finish has a black sheen like basalt. Josiah Wedgewood developed a clay which he called basalt ware. Brian Hollingworth has a wide knowledge and interest in the history of ceramics. The finish on the Black Bear has used this idea from the past, bringing it into sculptural ceramics of the present..

It is an example of a surface finish the perfectly suits the sculptural  subject.

rhino sculpture

 

 Again, using the black basalt finish described above, Brian Hollingworth has created a rhino sculpture that has used this black sheen to enhance an animal sculpture.

The sheen of the basalt finish enhances the sculptural form and the underlying anatomy of the rhino. It is this knowledge not only of the rhino from, but of the muscles and skeleton structure that gives  Brian Hollingworth's rhino sculpture its unique quality.
