Revised Fox & Hare

Fox & Hare, or why night follows day
Fox & Hare, 6″ x 6″ x 3/8″, $75
One villages tale of why night follows day. The fox is the moon and the hare is the sun and they are in this continuous chase through the sky, and that is why night follows day. This is a revision of an earlier design which had the hare sort of upside down. The collagraph plate was about seven years old and wearing out, so it was a good time to make a new printing plate with a slightly different layout. The xray style is indiginous to the coastal areas of Alaska.

The red is new, it is a majolica base with red stain and without the opacifier. Also new is the temuko gold for the background. The clay is from the mudflats next to Anchorage, Alaska.

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.

    Hi, Ed. I bought two of your beautiful tiles a few years ago and have displayed them. Will they be okay if I set a hot pot from the range or stove on them? If so, I have an excuse to purchase a few more! Thanks.

      Hi Angela,
      Yes, you can set a hot pot on the tile. I add spodumene to the clay body which the ceramics industry uses to give dishware thermal shock resistance.
