WAXING CRESCENT MOON - created by silverplating the bronze moon mask

MOON MASK I (New Moon) `D`

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.

The Full Moon mask is completely silver plated; while the NEW MOON, HALF MOON and CRESCENT MOON have only their coronas drawn in silver.

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