Two Halves

Do two halves make a whole? Sometimes I wonder! I often feel divided or indecisive about something only to end up like poor Humpty Dumpty. If only there could be some space between the divisions, there might be a place where the parts could reconcile. Wow, this is surely the most cryptic entry yet....

This mask is my first attempt at overglaze painting and I am pleased at the prospects of having a new tool in the box. First, I fired the stoneware piece with a matte white glaze. After firing, it was covered with black overglaze enamel and allowed to dry. I then used sgraffito techniques to make the pattern and it was fired again to cone 018.
