Ceramic sculpture and mixed media. 10" x 10" unframed. 4" deep. 2017.
“ This piece is truly one of a kind and started with the purchase of the round beaded mat behind the face. Found on one of my many trips to a thrift store, the gold beads evoked a sun or halo for me and so I searched my fabric collection for something that would add to the ethereal feel I was looking to represent. The layers of gold gauze and ivory chiffon give texture to the face and volume to the hair. Collectively these elements form a representation of the goddess of the dawn. “
