Lucy in the Sky

And here's Lucy...

This, of course, refers to the song, but I've given my own twist to the mask. Lucy has her "diamonds" and I've merged her with an image of the Virgin Mary. Is this a saint or a sinner? I'll let you decide!

I've been influenced heavily by travels in Mexico and I love the different portrayals of "La Virgen". It was an exercise in whimsy mixing the images and is not meant to have any religious significance.

The mask was sculpted with stoneware clay, painted with engobes and glazes, and fired to cone 5.
