Evil Eye Warder
I got a call from Florida Craftsmen Gallery on Monday and they asked if I would want to show my work in the Tampa International Airport. So I said yes and I think this is one of the pieces I am going to include. She's the Evil Eye Warden or the Evil Eye Warder Offer. Get it, she wards off the evil eye.
After all, what's better in an airport than a creature who keeps bad luck at bay? She's a big girl measuring 28 inches from her feet to the tip of her crown. And I actually built her in 2 pieces so she could fit into a kiln.
I am pleased with the glaze, her face reads pretty realistic. Almost creepy... but I like it like that. A lot.
