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 –
From the siren, satyrs, sinners and saints series –
a good girl scout – never leaveshomewithoutherhanky
mixed media sculpture, ceramic, vintage meccano, ankle shoe studs, underglaze, engobe, terra sigillata, stains 45 x 35 x30 cm
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.
