Another commission for the first half 2017 was a Girl with red shoes. You have seen them before, but this time she is large, larger than my usual big masks.
The lovely client has spotted smaller Girl with red shoes at PikaPika, organised by Creative Clerkenwell, last year. Then she visited me at CAL, and and we discussed her commission.
Here is the comparison of shoes. The red pair is ordinary one
Retail shows like CAL and Hatfield are great occasions for visitors to see all ranges of artists' work. Especially if you are interested in a special piece to be made just for you. You could see the size, colours and other details in person. 3D work looks bigger in person than on the photos.

She also requested the girl will either have quince flowers or a ribbon. I thought the flowers would suit her best.

These two images were sent to the client. Different backgrounds give different impressions.
As I had several commissions at the same time, I was able to do frequent firings. After the mask and shoes were fired, I got a mask stand made for them. The larger the mask, the taller the stand.

She was packed carefully and posted to the lovely client. Thank you so much!
