Moon Dancer Three

First as she was drying, waiting for second stage.






I waxed the edges of smaller parts as she dries...hoping that they will all dry more evenly that way.  She is totally hollow, including head and arms.  I've got a few more things to do in the next stages, of course.  First a bisque (cone 05), then to add some glazes or stains.  Then a higher firing to cone 5-6, and then to glue on a couple of crystals on her skirt area.

She's bisqued, waiting for some stain to bring out carving details.



 I'm not using glaze as a final surface, but rubbing it into the details so they will "pop" a bit more...with black glaze.

I'll let you see her, hopefully before Christmas!

Within us is the soul of the whole, the wise silence, the universal beauty, the eternal One.
