My piece “She’s Not Barbie” has been included in the ClayHouston Virtual Membership Show.
This piece was created to celebrate the strength of women and girls. Materials used include stoneware clay (Laguna Grande), colored slip, underglaze, and the head of a doll. The basic form is a cube with a support tube in the middle. After the form was built, it was covered with colored slip; the slip was built up in places to form a “path.” Sgraffito technique was used to add words related to the theme, as well as grid lines. After a bisque firing, the words and grid were coated with a clear glaze, and the piece was fired again. Finally a doll head was glued to the top of the support tube.
It’s approximately 13″ H x 6″ W x 6″ D
UPDATE … May 28, 2021 … Felt that the name of this piece didn’t really convey my thoughts/inspiration. So, it’s been renamed. Now called: “Not Just A Pretty Face”.
