Jackie’s Angel

One of my past hobbies was making porcelain dolls from molds.

This angel was made for my sister Jackie when she was sick with cancer.

The porcelain body and face went thru numerous paintings and firings to achieve a specific depth to her look.
Her clothing and head covering were made from one of Jackie’s favorite blouses.
The wings were made – feather by feather – extra thick at the back to hide the monofilament that allowed her to be suspended from a hook in the ceiling.

Dimensions: 12"h x 10"w

Media: Ceramic, Feathers
