Bronze Kiln God on Site





I went today and took pictures of my bronze kiln god mini-monument on top of the wood kiln.

This looks like a monument to the Fire Kiln. I liked how you displayed it with burnt newspaper, broken wood shards, and kiln bricks on a pedestal. I get a real tribal connection from the two faces and how they are facing the two different kinds of kiln really is a cool way to visualize the process. One face seems calm while the other has a sinister gaze going on. I like the fact that the images are good quality and not computer print outs.... also good job on the craft of the bronze piece. I like the color too. Good stuff.

I enjoy the piece very much, espeically the fact that you used a plain white pedestal, as well as creating a little pedestal with burn fire wood, bricks, etc to place your piece on it. Very symbolic to show that he can be a totem or an idol or a representative of being a Fire G-d or a pottery g-d, or a whorshipped for good fortune, Thats what i feel from the piece and the pictures as well. The picture is hung up nicely, as well as the piece being very nicely done. I got one question, in which did you intended to leave the line in which shows the seperation of the mold, or thats just not being totally finished on the sides?

i really enjoy the aged ancient ffeel theat the metal has. it clearly is a idol or god that should be worshipoed. the pictures would depict a ceramics god with twin faces depending on the outcome of the firing . the tribal faces are a clear depiciton of an idol. sweet
