Look What I Found!
This is a Dancing Ladies vase with lid that I sculpted/recreated while working for Fenton Art Glass. The original iron mould was lost during the war and I had to reproduce it and only had some vases in the museum to look at. This view displays one side, the other had another woman but in a different pose. This piece had to have some areas made from plaster that was turned on a lathe and then carved with a knife and various tools. The ladies I sculpted in relief using clay. I loved working in plaster and clay. Maybe I should try woodworking?
