Clay head sculpture "Bent Man"
Black clay , matte black unglazed clay original sculpture by Margaret Petchell 2019
18cm h x 10cm w, cm finished height on plinth 49cm
Pottery for me is an extension of my art: working with faces which encompasses my experience of painting portraiture and background as a make-up artist.
The masks are formed from one block of clay, massaged, kneaded and sculpted into shape.
The heads are either unglazed and twice fired or finished with a matte glaze, giving a more primal natural aesthetic.
They look great displayed inside on a side table/shelf or outside as feature in your garden.
