“Fire Ghost” Tony Reynolds, oil on canvas
Hi Tony. Love this painting.
Thanks, Debra. “Fire Ghost” is a idea/theme I’ve employed several times. As I started discovering 3 dimensional work as a potter I was very interested in the spirits and ghosts of the kiln that spread the fire’s magic to complete my pots. As any potter will admit, the fire decides what the outcome will be. We are mere pawns in the process. As a lot we clay workers are a bit superstitious. The kiln gods, of whom we dedicate in effigy around our kilns are a fickle bunch not to be trifled with. The “Fire Ghost” is all about that magic.
