My intention with “Growth” was orignally to be an outdoor ornament on which moss could grow. This wasn’t the final vision for the piece, though I may go in that direction another time. I ended up covering her in a thick coat of oxide wash which I wiped off a majority of the sculpture. This left behind glossy details in the recessed areas, creating a lovely contrast. I have no idea where the yellow came from in the second picture, it just came out of the kiln that way.
