All of the small "glaze test" pieces can be made into larger Wall Pieces. Let me know what you are interested in and I will give you a price quote...


Thank you for stopping by! I've been a maskmaker for twenty years and an artist/craftsperson for over thirty. Each of my works is one of a kind, made entirely by me. I put a lot of time and effort into each piece whether it's the smallest pendant or the most intricate wall mask. The small masks are made as glaze and idea tests for my larger works - they make very nice small display pieces - or pendants and are ready to wear. I include a black leather cord with the pendants for hanging.

If you'd like to see more of my larger pieces, please visit my website portfolio at: http://www.maskwoman.com or

The pictures you sent me did not do her justice - she is even more beautiful in person. I love the contrast between the shininess of her wings and the matte finish of the rest of the piece. I love her serious expression - becoming Bird Girl is hard work! Thank you so much for creating her for me!

About

The evolution of a maskmaker...

Some of you may wonder why I'm putting so much energy into the making of masks. Well, after years of being a maker of many different things, I finally began to dabble in masks (inspired by my own collection of masks from around the world). It dawned on me, after the first few that I made, that a path was opening up before me. I knew that I didn't want to copy foreign masks or even to borrow ideas from them. I did want to be a part of the mask tradition. Thus began my journey. Very early on, around 1998, I decided that I would make "American" masks with contemporary ideas - my contribution to the tradition. After a while, the masks became more and more personal which seemed a natural progression. I continue making them with the hope that some of the ideas I present are universal.
