Soon: a 5 foot high Ceramic Mermaid for the garden

Marcia Kuperberg creating a section of a mermaid for the garden.Originally destined to decorate a pillar in a Turkish villa, she will now hopefully enhance the bottom of our garden in London- when finally finished. So far, seen here, I've created most of her top half: face, flowing hair and torso - moulding and carving her to give 3D effect to 4x A3 sized large tiles that will join together for the whole body (this is one - the rest show more hair and her tail). 

She is still in the soft clay stage - a few weeks from biscuit firing. She'll be fixed to the painted mirrors in the garden, surrounded by clematis and vines next to the pool. Can't wait to add glazes and oxide to her green hair coils and make her pearly scaled tail. I'll need to experiment on smaller tiles for different effects. Watch this space!

She is going to be fantastic, such a great form and love the hair. Can't wait to see the next stages.

Thanks, Rosie. I'll post her stages as she develops. The biggest challenge will be her tail - I want it to be really beautiful - full of lustre - shimmering in the light.
