Carving the Queen and then....Off with her Head!!!
So like I said in an earlier post, I made the queen too tall for the kiln so I carved her and then sadly I had to cut off her head. It will be glued back on after firing. I had the idea of the roses on her body being like tattoos across her chest. I was going to carve an image of the queen in her garden underneath the roses. But I liked the rose pattern so much that it began to be a dress that she is wearing I can't wait to piece her back together so I can really see the end result.
