I made this in a beggining Sculpture class last summer. This is my relief based on my favorite painting ever Birth of Venus
by Botticelli. I based the landscape on the moon, with all the craters in the ground. There is a sun and another planet in the background. It's super shinny from the glaze so it's a bit hard to photograph.
Here is a picture of it when the clay was still wet, before I fired the frist time. I love this picture!!
I still need to do some touch ups; like painting the grout with a gloss black paint, fix some of the white parts that are meant to be black, paint the sides and frame it. I love it so much, I'm really impressed that I could make something like this!
What do you think?
