Wall Work: Meditation Mask with Cream Arabesques
These were new for me spring of 2020! I was trying to capture the magic of the seated and standing figures' faces. I am super happy with the results. They have presence. Ironically I came up with "meditation mask" before the pandemic hit. I built this hollow then I carved one side with an arabesque with a flower. A transfer of the same pattern in the rest of the surface under a deep turquoise glaze. I love the detail on this mask. The glazes are black and turquoise, olive green and gold with creamy white on the flowers. I strive to make it look ancient. It hangs on two holes in the back. Indoor enjoyment only. Signed "Sullivan" and Canada on the back. 11" wide x 12.5"high.
