Teenage Blessed Virgin Mary

14 Jan

After studying the first few chapters of Luke again, I felt inspired to make a bust of the Blessed Virgin as she might have appeared during the Anunciation, or maybe Elizabeth’s Song. … I know– the eyes, the eyes. It’s the best I can do right now.

As a clay nerd, I’m extremely excited that my ingenious plan of throwing a very big,  thick pot on the potter’s wheel, then turning it upside down to form a shell for the hollow sculpture seems to have worked. If I can pull this off without big cracks as it dries, it will become unnecessary to sculpt out of solid clay, then laboriously cut the finished piece in half, scoop it all out and try to put it back together again.
