Blue Lady

 She is probably singing...or something expansive...

 16" high, made of brownstone stoneware...

I'm not pleased with the glaze.  Months of tests that just didn't come out, I finally gave up and just used what I could. 

It still wasn't satisfactory, so she was reglazed twice, and there's the beginning of a crack on her toe, the little sticking out toe of a shoe that she has.

So I think she'll just have to stay the way she is. 
 The Blue Lady.

Skin has blue tones, as well as hair.
Perhaps she's singing the blues.


  1. Since I do like to sculpt figures, and I am never satisfied with glazes, I've concluded I should just leave the clay in its raw a piece of finished work without adding the shiney stuff glaze makes. So next time...she said.

  2. I thought this turned out nice too. The face/hair was painted really well. The figure had a lovely shape.


Thanks for making this a more personal connection by saying what you think. I'll post your comments for others to see soon!
