Reclining Lady is now painted, glazed and finished!

ceramic reclining lady with denim skirt and patent leather bootsmodel for 'reclining lady' ceramic pieceMarcia Kuperberg working on clay model, Here she is!  She was modelled in clay from life (model at left). 
I'm pleased with the final result, particularly the texture of her denim skirt and the folds of her matching sweater. Also happy with her shiny brown boots that contrast well with her less shiny black tights. 

Next figure to show will be my mermaid but for this, there was no model - couldn't persuade the local mermaids to pose.

Fantastic result and I am also looking forward to seeing the finished mermaid. Bravo! Where will she recline?

Thanks, Jo! She's currently reclining on the radiator ledge in our downstairs hall, carefully positioned in front of a vase so she doesn't fall over the edge.

Great work, mum! I can see the texture of the denim really works and I like the boots too. Danny x

Thanks, Dan! You've picked the two parts of her that I like best - glad you do, too!

I also particularly like 'This Is The Life!' And probably will like it even more once we've visited the Turkish flat...

Yes, this painting reflects leisurely life on holiday in the garden of a Turkish villa where we stayed. That's me in the hammock. Love hammocks - the thought, if not the comfort!

I loved seeing her at Kerry Ave. But I hadn't seen the picture of the original model. The likeness is uncanny. Next commission: mini Annalise and Alons?!
