Bolted Ball-Corinne Cox
This ceramic sphere is raku fired and handmade in Alabama! Two bolts are driven through the ball. The sphere is approximately 3.5" in diameter, and the bolts make the width 5". Stand included. Give it a shake and hear it rattle!
Corinne Cox grew up in Birmingham in a wonderfully creative family. She moved to Atlanta after earning a BA in Communication Arts from Florida State University. Corinne attended and later taught at Portfolio Center, a professional advertising/design school in Atlanta. Her design career includes work in graphic design studios, advertising, and freelancing. Corinne moved to San Francisco where she continued doing graphics along with taking fine art classes in ceramics, painting and photography. Today Corinne has her own kilns and fires in a barn at her home in Wedowee, Alabama. She makes whimsical clay sculptures of her dogs, her cats, birds, reptiles and imaginary creatures with colorful glazes that are Raku fired. She also enjoys making masks and sculptures she calls Spinning Heads. Each sculptural head starts from a mold of her face and she claims “there’s a little Corinne in every piece”.
