The first half of Vic's creation started in Kingston Ontario by Tuile. The inspiration came from the luck of the draw from a lego mystery packet from our local toy store. Vic, the sailor, is named after Tuile's great grandfather when he sailed the seas for the Canadian Navy.
Vic's main body, a dried flower brick, was coil built with Laguna B-mix stoneware and the surrounding black chains with Laguna B3 Brown. After bisque firing Vic, he travelled to Kanasas City where Cat Wong took over with underglazing, glazing, lustre and finished all the firings, up to Cone 6, at Belger Arts Centre. Cat also scuplted the wonderful charms that surround Vic; inspired by traditional old school sailer tattoos.
