2021, glazed stoneware
A ceramic tulip bulb, inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s depiction of the stone of madness as a sprouting tulip in his painting “Cutting the Stone.”
Made of a white clay body with black slip fired to cone 6. Reaction with the slip and clay body causes small blisters on the leaf. Tulips range in size from 4 to 6 inches tall.
