Below-Slave Tags Reimagined  Aug. 2021

These reimagined "Slave Tags' feature 26 gauge/16mm 12" X 12" copper sheet metal that were outlined on the front and repousse' to give an illusion of depth-patinaed -antique blue/green using ammonia- vinegar and salt in an incubator atmosphere (covered film developer tray) -dried-sealed-then mounted on diamond treaded 0.025 sheet metal and hung from a chain echoing how slaves wore their tags around their neck for a year when they would  hire themselves out to buy their freedom. The previous series above featured Raku Clay firing techniques with added embellishments to complete the narrative.
