MOON MASK II (Half Moon)

1980

This piece is available for purchase.

Study of the face of the moon - in his different phases.

Cast in the Artist's Studio.

Modelled from life soon after leaving Art School - as homage to a sympathetic planet. Sioban has always felt a particular fondness for this piece and so has adopted it as her symbol.

The Moon has a fundamental effect on our lives on a daily basis. Tides, winds, moods, menstruation, and even how and when to plant are amongst the many ways.

The piece developed into a series using silver with bronze to create the effect of four stages of the moon. If you look closely you can see the face of the man in the moon - and in this - the HALFMOON MASK you can also spot his profile picked out in silver.

The Full Moon mask is completely silver plated; with both the Waning and Waxing Moons have their coronas drawn in silver.

The Moon Mask has also been cast into glass. Seen with a light carefully positioned behind - it is breathtaking.
