Torso With Fern
Here's Anna Keiller's latest ceramic sculpture, using a fern leaf for effect: Torso With Fern (2009). This is Part 4 of her Autumn Mist and Ferns series. Very attractive. The torso was painted with a thin coat of manganese oxide and the bright green of the fern enhanced by copper oxide and transparent glaze. This effect reminds me of some of the bronze sculptures by Brenda Naylor in which a dancer's clothes are highlighted in green (CLICK). Click the title link to visit Anna's blog.
