Hare & Moon Blue | Wall Tile
The lore of the Hare is rich in many cultures. The hare is often seen as a servant of the gods in mythology and acts as a messenger from the gods to mankind, traveling by moonlight to instruct and guide us. In the West, we speak of the 'Man in the moon' when looking at the moon's markings. In the East, generations have passed down the story of the 'Hare in the moon' who can be seen here, bent over her cauldron, creating the elixir of life for the lunar goddess.

Kate mixes her clay from raw materials and casts each piece one by one. The overlaid images are originally drawn in pen and ink on paper and then scanned and printed in glaze. The image transfer (decal) is then applied to a glaze fired piece and is re-fired for a third time, causing the imagery to melt into the surface of the glaze. During this final firing, small copper crystals will often begin to grow in the glaze, creating beautiful glittering patches of copper and splashes of orange randomly throughout the glaze!
