I'd love for you to check out my Etsy shop, EARTHSHARDS, to select small, kiln-fired earthenware faces for your art practice.These are especially popular for Spirit Dolls and small assemblages and shrines.
These evocative faces were made in my studio from press molds that I create in clay from weathered old statues and monuments in historical sculpture gardens and cemeteries. Sizes range from about 1.75”-2.5" and will vary because each piece is individually crafted. I use them in many ways – for Spirit Doll faces, as closures for the journals, for mixed-media jewelry – your imagination is the only limit.
Each face is made from fired cold-fnished clay. They are more permanent and sturdy than flowerpot clay, small and strong. Some have holes, some do not. All are fired to 1900F (Cone 05).
