Sculpture: Contemplative Figure with Turquoise Poppies and Bees
I have been making these standing figures since 2006. Inspired by Chinese tomb figures, I have thought of them as monks, as nuns and more recently simply as meditating figures. I hand build these hollow then carve and decorate the surface when it is still wet clay. This figure is carved with poppies accented by transfers of bees under the sand coloured glaze. Truly a serene figure. 5" deep by 8.5" wide and 17" in height!
