Ceramic sculpture, 2020
Dimensions: 28cm diameter x 39cm height
Handbuilt using terracotta clay, decorated with white slip clay and coloured oxides.
This sculpture is like a little temple, dedicated to the archetypal wisdom of The Grandmother.
She has been lovingly carved to let light in or out, with an intricate mandala patterning the back. The geometry of the mandala is 13, to represent the thirteen lunar cycles of a year.
She can be lit up inside with candlelight, be an altar place for offerings of incense, flowers, water etc.
This is a unique one-off piece of sculpture.
Suitable for indoor or outdoor settings. Cover (or better still bring inside) during hard frosts.
