Girl with ceramic floral wreath

England had a hot spell. It was the hottest June since 1976. It was difficult to hand-build. Besides I hurt my back. So I had to cut back working on a chair; I had no problem walking or standing. The heatwave is over, and backache is eased. I have started working in earnest.

Today I would like to share three of my works I made a few months ago. Some months ago, one of my clients sent me a photo of a girl's skull with ceramic wreath in a archaeological museum in Patras, Greece. The ceramic flowers are pink, yellow, green and gold. Colours are still bright. They seem to me spring flowers, suitable for a girl. She must have been loved so much to be given such a beautiful farewell.

Prior to that, I became curious about life before death and after death. And the image inspired me.

I made three works. The first one was a mask, and my interpretation of the skull. I seldom use pink (not my favourite colour), and I was unsure about it, but it worked fine.

The second one was my imagination; if the girl didn't die then, and became a grown-up.

The last one was the girl after her death. She is going to have her last journey to the land of death over water.

I meant to try to understand them. That's what I do after they are completed. But I have been too busy to do that, but I think it is time for them to come out of the boxes. So I could look into their eyes.
