I have always wanted to make a ceramic work of Greenman, but it was Treebeard, the Ent from Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings, that was my real inspiration. However, it was the more human-like ceramic faces made by two friends, Brittany Stracke and Randy Simpson that were my motivation to finally begin this series was set.
So far I have created three, but there are more in my mind to make.
After Treebeard, I saw a bit of a tree in my friend Randy. I don’t think he will be offended being a model for a tree.
Not yet named or glazed, my third face takes on a younger appearance.
Once I have a few more faces and if we can find a gallery we are planning a three-artist show titled “FACES”
