Holly Stohl  Hello all. 🌸

Detail from Mercurial Lepus. I love how the drawing is affected by flashing, crystals, and wood ash; the wood kiln both obscured and protected this piece in all the right areas.

Mercurial Lepus.

This is my favorite piece out of the Denver anagama. The idea stemmed from revisiting an earlier project; an attempt to personify each of the planets by assigning them an animal counterpart, a way to create my own celestial mythology. Mercury's fast orbit, small size, and grey palette made it the perfect choice for the rabbit. In this piece, the rabbits trail down a Mercurial landscape, alongside the constellations Gemini and Virgo, of which Mercury is the ruling planet. • • •
