Face of the Dog by Turtle-Arts Face of the Dog by Turtle-Arts
So, like I said, it's finally time for me to share some of my traditional art with you guys! Mostly by that I mean my sculpture stuff, since I don't do too much traditional painting or whatever. But some of you may recall that I said I took a ceramics class this last semester- well, now I'm finally getting around to sharing some of my projects with you guys! ^^

This is one of my faves that I did in that class. It's a lifesized mask, though it's just for wall hanging, not for wearing as it's not actually open on the back. I made it because I had been looking for a fourth mask for my wall, but I couldn't find one I liked. So I decided to make my own instead. The assignment for this was to create something that was at least 75% covered in texture.

Technique used- American Raku
