Dove & Sunset Sculpture Fine Art Mask - HandMade Painted Twighlight, White Birds 3D Face Wall Hanging - Inspiratoinal Peace Bird Plaque
white birds homecoming
This painting is part of a "Little Bird" series that I am working on, and has taken a different turn and evolved into a "mask" instead of just a flat Wall Hanging. It seems natural now, the Flock of White Birds emerging against the Backdrop of a Glorious Sunset, and Flying across what could be the "Face of the Sun". There are "Faces of Nature" everywhere, we just need to open our eyes and See.....
I created this mask by rolling out a slab of clay, then by cutting and "ripping" and pushing and pulling and manipulating it, I formed the subtle "facial features" and the rough and rugged edges of the "Mask". Then I bisque fired the piece so it became "hard", drew the Design on with pencil and then I layered 3 coats of glaze paints to achieve the Brilliant colors you see on the finished piece. It has 2 coats of clear glaze for protection, has been fired a Second time and is titled "DUSK FALLS: THE RETURN". It is signed and dated on the back by yours truly.
The Mask itself measures 10" across at it's widest and is 14 1/2" long, with the addition of the Feather and Wire Talisman adornment it is 19" long.
The Talisman consists of 2 White Bird Feathers, a long Carved Clay Bead, a Vintage Pewter Feather, a Vintage Crystal Tear Drop, a large and 2 small Picture Jasper Beads, a Vintage hanging Amber Crystal, various Glass Beads and the Copper wire.
I made a clay hanger on the back (and attached recycled copper wire to it) so it can be hung easily and safely....YAY!!!
This Vibrant and Powerful painted Mask Wall Hanging will be a Unique and Beautiful addition to any room in your home, a reminder that We all return to our Homes, our Sacred Places, our Sanctuary's, Renewed and Restored by the Light.....
♥*♥*NOTE: I do my absolute Best to photograph my pieces in the Utmost & Ultimate Natural Light Conditions to bring you an image that is closest to the actual look of the art you are viewing. With that said, taking pictures of my beautiful SHINY Masks is challenging and the light bounces off every little bend in the pottery. If you have any questions at all on this piece, and what you are seeing, please do not hesitate to contact me!♥ :)
