I’ve been to three mask making sessions at the Art Station and I am pleased with how my piece is turning out. The technique being taught is very different from the way I’ve worked with clay in the past. We finished the doing the sculpt last night, and next week we are going to glaze them. I can’t wait to see how that will turn out.
Each of my fellow classmates masks were very different and very expressive. One lady used pictures of Greek and Roman statuary to inspire her leaf framed face which has a touch of the wise woman about it. The sole gentleman in the class sculpted a Native American head dress to frame his broad masculine face. Another student’s was The Man-in-the-Crescent-Moon, another’s was a large leaf with a face on it, and the last one was also of Native American design. Everyone is having a good time.
