This sculpture is hand-built in porcelain. The masked figure has a costume which is sewn to fit; the layers of porcelain, glaze, oxides and metal pins, create a disrupted and fragile effect.
About this maker
Jemma’s work explores the way that girls are generally constrained from birth to conform to an appearance and code of behaviour, to present a perfect face and maintain the expectations of others. The use of porcelain or stoneware with layered disrupted surfaces, describe the vulnerability beneath.
