Looking Back - Earth Woman 2009

Recently I've been looking back, getting inspired, and reviewing what I've learned from previous work. Above is a wall mask I made in 2009 which I called Earth Woman. The mask seems more unisex or perhaps hermaphrodite, fitting in today's culture. Amazingly the tree branch appendages didn't break. One thing I don't like is the handing mechanism wire is visible. That's something I wouldn't do now. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.

  1. I like the way the tree and face interact. It’s fun to go back and draw inspiration from past work.

    1. Hi Suzi, thanks, I am glad I started a blog back then to document my travels in clay.

  2. Yes, it's always good to learn, sometimes from others, and if we're honest, from ourselves too. Have a great 2019!

  3. Earthwoman looks a tad sad. Which given the way we treat our planet is entirely appropriate.

    1. Hi Sue, thanks, I saw here as sleeping like in winter, although I guess if it were winter the tree wouldn't have any leaves. Yes much destruction to our planet for sure.

  4. Some kind of woven "material" replicating vegetation would work as the hanging material.
