Here is another offering from the leaf series. I wanted this "leaf" to appear surprised about its separation from the tree and a bit excited about the journey (as in free falling...). The leaves are becoming expressions of my own personal struggles with the challenges that life throws at me. Can I surrender? Can you?
Life, I feel, is not about giving up, but about surrendering to the possibilities. I hope that's the message this piece sends!
The mask was sculpted with raku clay and fired 4 times (bisque, engobe, underglaze pencil and glaze).
