Sculpture in red earthenware, life-scale
   Here is the Spring, smiling, with wreaths of lavish flowers in her hair...  Nestled in the blooms, small faces look up, just awakened or still half asleep.
   This sculpture is in fired red earthenware and is large life-scale.  It was created rapidly, during about four days' worth of sculpting, to avoid damage from drying; it is hollow-built.  The material is a new earthenware clay of splendid texture and tint; I worked it up it from a formula designed by Amy Myers.
    The style is essentially "New Baroque", used to express exhilaration and joy in the new world of spring.  Search carefully for the small faces of the flowers!

  1. It is a very sweet face, I like the look in his eyes and the perfect ratio of its small nose and lips ... well, it's beautiful!
    Small details between flowers are great, bring creativity ... and joy.
