Pipe Dreams

This mask is an "evolutionary" piece - which means I did another, very similar, one. The first was left behind after my residency at the ICS in 2006 - so, at least I know that it has a good home! But this past year, I felt a need to make another. Of course, it's not the it the up to date version.

The ideas that come from dreams are some of my most cherished, and this mask, with all its layers, is one of these.

It was sculpted with raku clay, painted with colored engobes, fired to cone 5 and finished with pencils.
