Mild steel, terracotta, textile

This costume was worn at the opening night of Glimmering Thicket, and formed a part of the larger installation Earth Canal (2020)

The mask component of this costume is made from dished  mild steel, with lines chased in with a specially-made chasing tool. Terracotta rings were added to the piece, and it was fired to 900 centigrade in the kiln.
