Handmade Ceramic Mask

Handmade tribal mask made of terracotta clay. I've not used any mold...each bit of this mask is made of different hand building techniques. This time i've tried bit of sculpting apart for slab and coil work.

The most interesting part was shaping nose and lips. Nose looks little sharper...sort of witchy look. Sculpting is quite an interesting technique. You can shape any figure the way you want.  Sculpting sounds little difficult but when the fingers start twisting and tweeting the clay, interesting shapes come up. I’m now eagerly waiting to bisque fire this mask and then paint it with vibrant colors!!
