For my sculptures, I use mid/high fire clay to hand build female heads and figures. I usually add feminine touches, such as flowers and vines sculpted from clay, to each piece, or I free-hand sketch and paint flowering vines and female faces onto the sculptures’ skin, similar to colorful tattoos. I paint the figures with color-saturated underglazes, while highlighting some of the flowering vines with translucent overglazes, giving each piece a mix of glossy and soft sheen finishes. The sculptures’ faces are pensive and expressive. They project determination, joy, peacefulness, or wistfulness.
