|Sleeping Eros, bronze from 2nd or 3rd century B.C.|
Here are a couple of images from the first glaze firing. The work is already back in the kiln for another round of color. Since I've completely run out of room in both my studio and house, these were photographed outside in strong sunlight. The bed form was constructed from thick styrofoam which is topped with a pillow that I sewed and stuffed with bean chair pellets. The cushion fabric has yet to be cut and shaped.
Next I constructed a piece to be suspended by a cable or chord from the ceiling. It is also in two parts that will be joined after the firing is complete. These images are pretty poor; I hope to have ones that better represent the color and form soon.
|These are like drips or udders that will hang down from the piece pictured above.|
