A Couple More
I was able to finish up two more pieces that are now just waiting to dry and then head to the kiln.
The first one is actually a mate to the piece, Birth of Nations, that sold back in December. I plan on casting some glass pieces using Barbie heads and put them on copper wire coming out of the top of his head (I put holes there already). The female has G.I. Joe heads that I had cast from different types of glass. Since her name is Birth of Nations, I am not sure what his name should be. Any suggestions???
The second piece is actually a redo. The first one ended up with a crack in the ladies shoulder, but I loved how it turned out. Of course, I can never make two the same. I didn't actually look at the other one, so that it would be slightly different. I will glaze it with the same glaze, too. But, looking at the two - I wish I had made this one where they were looking at each other, like the finished one. I guess I will just have to make another one!
