Fallen Angel

I've made three different pieces using the idea of "fallen angels" - however, I'm using the idea as a metaphor rather than as a religiously based concept.  My version of a fallen angel is something that is slightly tarnished and a little broken but, in spite of that, persists.....

And here is a quote by Jean Cocteau:
I feel that there is an angel inside me whom I am constantly shocking.

This raku sculpture was made in three parts: Head, Wings and Body and assembled post firing.  It now resides in Hungary.
