Loving the Sculptures of Margaret Keelan

Perusing the beautiful blog of Coty Farquhar over the weekend and was introduced to the ceramic art of Margaret Keelan, which I found absolutely fascinating.

Made of clay, these figures are stained, glazed, fired and stained, glazed and fired again which develops the final patina.  Using 18th and 19th century molds for the doll heads and torn bits of fabric for the clothing, Margaret's clay figures come to life.

To see more of Margaret's exquisite work and to read about the process involved, go here.
