Challenge Me! 20.20: 55 cms high: paperclay.
During the spring of 2020, Lockdown time, I found myself making a number of large female figures. Challenge Me! is one of these. This is a big powerful woman, with well-pronounced curves. She stands firmly grounded, and somehow, even though she has no head, seems to emit a strong sense of self!
She is made with my normal paperclay, but I added much less copper oxide to the surface, so she is a lot paler than usual. I've spent a long time thinking about whether I like this effect, but in the end I do.
