Mermaid Purses

posted in: Ceramics | 0

Playing with backdrops again because I can’t get to the beach during lockdown. These are Mermaid Purses stuffed with sea twine. I think I prefer the right hand one, it seems a bit more believable, or at home on the seabed.

I hand knotted a net and fired it in slip with Pipefish. I think this image works better as the net mimics the grey mountain in the background, and looks as if the final rays of sun are just catching the sculpture.
