The Orator - Frederick Douglass Sculpture Portrait fired with patina

 The ceramic sculpture portrait of Frederick Douglass has been fired and it came through beautifully. The heavy, groggy clay had little shrinkage and retained it's rough and earthy qualities. I have layered different pigments for the final patina and had the photos taken.

This life-sized bust, The Orator, can be seen on my website and you can see the process of sculpting this portrait, including the original clay maquette (sketch) on this blog as well as on my website
