a good girl scout – neverleaveshomewithoutherhanky

Exciting developments I have been asked to provide sculptures to Tusk Gallery in South Yarra for an exhibition opening in March. Despite the short time frame I did have some work underway –

For those interested in process – she is hand built ‘Keane’s Special K” white groggy clay.
underglazed on her ‘hat’, engobe on her face, bisqued, then more stain and underglaze applied then fired to 1140 degrees.  Vintage meccano and a piece from one of my daughter’s broken sandals forms the shoulder pad (waste not)!! She then has a wax finishing on hat and a matt medium applied to the body for a bit of protection.

 

chameleonrecruits – before the fire

Nearly 2 months since I have posted something – we have been very busy helping our eldest twin prepare for her latest adventure – 12 months volunteering in North Yorkshire UK.  Apparently it started to snow yesterday – her first experience of the white, wet stuff !!!  I have not entirely neglected the studio and this morning 3 new ceramic sculptures went into the kiln.  Sneak peak of one of them before firing …these are still from the sirens, satyrs, sinners and saints series
