Polarbear & Seal

"Polarbear & Seal"
Polar bear & Seal, 6″ x 6″ x 3/8″, multiglazed, cone 6 oxidation.
The Polarbear is waiting for the seal at one of its breathing holes. The Inupiat (Eskimo) in my mother’s village of Point Hope, Alaska pretty much survived on seals and other sea mammals during the winters, much like the polar bear. The x-ray style used in the coastal areas sometimes shows the insides of the animals, like the ribs and stomach.

About Ed Mighell

Former civil engineer turned artist. Received BFA in printmaking. I developed a nice tile clay body using the glacial clay from the inlet next to Anchorage. I sell mainly at the Alaska Native Heritage Center during the Summer. I also go outside, what Alaskans call the rest of the U.S., to large arts and crafts fares.
