A rose is a rose is a rose - and roses are sweet....this is about as "girly" as my work gets! There are times when I just can't resist doing something pretty and flowery. I also rely heavily on literary references, so it was natural to combine the two in this mask.
Even though I'm not much of a girly girl or even much of a rose, I appreciate the idea. And, we all have something inside that is special - even if it isn't always apparent.
This piece is a combination of laquer resisted stoneware and raku. The parts were assembled post firing.
