I love to stay challenged & try new things, so a few years ago I started taking a ceramics class for fun. I wish I could devote more time to it - especially since this ceramic piece was fired over about a year ago and I have only recently had time to work on her again!!! She is meant to serve as a reliquary piece.
a container for holy (or sacred) relics.
She is coil built & glazed. Her hair “extensions” are built from a wire frame providing a sturdy form that I could weave the yarn around. She’s definitely more than half done, but I will eventually have enough yarn that the entire yarn section of hair will be solid & capable of mimicking the opening in the back of her hair. Expect to see a series of reliquaries from me someday!
