This is another of the "Hungary" pieces. I was feeling a bit old while working there! Many of the artists and students at the time were young (at least, younger than me) and, as always, I felt a need to fit in and to keep up. The mask suffered a "raku accident", so I decided to make the best of it. Sometimes, the accidents are upsetting, but I feel that this one actually benefits. The fact that it is broken and repaired highlights the fact that no matter what we do, the end result is the same.
Well, I'm officially back in the studio...but I'm taking things slow. Been researching and mulling over some new ideas-it's kind of like weeding the garden!
