A plaster mould was casted from the proto-type which   I sculpted in clay.  A series of 8 heads were then slip casted.  Layered surface decoration was done in underglaze before the  heads were bisqued fired.

‘Nostalgia vases’ after a glaze fire.  Underglazes were used in the form of decorating imagery on the surface during the greenware stage.

Aloes have captured my imagination for many years. Their fleshy, curveous leaves armed with rows of sharp thorns, overlap and support each other in an upward spiral and then in the colder months a flower in the shape of a candelabra in the brightest of orange create a nectar feast for insects & birds. Their ability to survive and thrive in often harsh & hostile terrain and their selfless giving in abundance to man & animal teaches me about life.
