Terracotta Portrait

 
 

These are life sized clay portraits done from life, featuring friends of all ages.  A few are shown in the chocolate colored leather hard stage of drying clay, others are unpatinaed natural terracotta (fired clay) that is brick orange, and others show the various painted patinas that can replicate bronze and other materials.  A handful are fantasy portraits featuring friends as emperors, goddesses, and characters of every sort.

One of a kind
