This is from an original sculpture by Sedona artist Jack Black.

Sculpting from raw clay, a mold is made of the piece after which stone-ware “slip” is cast into the mold, removed, and allowed to sit for several days. It is then cleansed and the detailing of the sculpture is redefined. It is then fired at 1900 degrees. After firing it is sanded again, and three coats of high fire glaze are applied by hand. The sculpture is then re-fired at 2200 degrees. No two pieces are identical and each piece is finished by hand.

It is signed and dated 1984 on the bottom.

Condition: Excellent- original condition
Provenance: Acquired from a private collector from Texas.
