Wave Study

 

I like sculpting water because it's relaxing and is quite meditative. I typically use water to support the main piece - examples include The Birth of Venus, Flying Fish, and many of my jewelry dishes: Mermaid Venus Watch Tray, Dolphin Jewelry Dish, White Humpback Whale Jewelry Dish. This is the first of what I plan to be a series of wave studies using the same process and celadon glazes, refining the technique along the way.

Korean Maiden

 

This is a second version I made based on my previous Korean Maiden with Gayageum. The gayageum or kayagum (in Korean 가야금), developed around the sixth century, is a traditional Korean plucked zither with 12 strings, though some more recent variants have 18, 21 or 25 strings. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument. It is similar with other Asian instruments like Chinese guzheng, Japanese koto, Mongolian yatga, Vietnamese đàn tranh, Sundanese kacapi and Kazakh jetigen.

Kyiv archangel Michael

 

The archangel St. Michael is the patron saint and symbol of Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine. A brilliant statue of St. Michael, gilded in gold with a flaming sword stands atop the Lach Gates at Independence Square in Kyiv. I used this as the inspiration for my version in support of the people of Ukraine.
