Green Cover

Last year I began making some masks that are almost flat. So far, they have all been swathed in coverings and I'm not really sure why I'm doing this! Perhaps it is my own insecurities coming out...

I do think a lot about being "green". It's such an important concept that I feel guilty every time I waste anything. I truly admire (envy?) those in the vanguard of the green movement.

The mask is raku clay that is painted with engobes after the bisque, fired again, decorated with underglaze pencils, then fired again - and finally, glazed and raku fired.

  1. I love the art you are making.

    Masks are...strange. When I wear one that I made of my face... I turn into a different person!
