The dove at the foot of the figure is supposed to go into her hands when it is completed. Of course, she is not going to wear the green gloves. The entire piece will be painted in subdued colors. I have to rely on your imagination for now, but I hope my message against gun violence is conveyed to you even at this stage.
While I took a break from social media, I experimented a lot with new finishing techniques. More experimentation is needed, but I feel ready to try them on my new pieces. I may ruin them, but that is a part of ceramic art. Something interesting may come out of it. Please look forward to it.

Thank you Iva for your kind words. I often think how I can make my art useful for society. This is one that was born out of such thought.

can't wait to see the finish you are going to come up with this-really like the green gloves..art should be political I think-that is its power...

I personally like political pieces. They somehow grab my heart, and I return to such pieces again and again. Thanks for the comment.
