Description

I’ve long since wanted to create a series of ‘porcelain/china’ masks and started with recreating my favourite, the Blue Willow Pattern.

I grew up with these plates and still have a few of them which i use to this day.

It was a challenge to recreate on a 3 dimensional form and when i drew the image onto the mask in pencil which i was really happy with, it took a few days before I was confident enough to start painting it in. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and adding the crackle glaze always adds an element of suspense as to whether it will work or provide yet another challenge, as it did with another of my ‘Porcelain’ masks. Thankfully this one turned out better than i had hoped.

So, here we now have a paper mache mask with acrylic hand painted Willow Pattern, finished with a crackle glaze and bitumen patina sealed with carnauba wax to replicate age-old porcelain.

As with most of my masks this one can be worn if you want to go to carnival, masquerade or fancy dress as a piece of iconic china or hung on a wall-possibly in your kitchen as a reminder of the china you maybe grew up with or wish you had.

Sold with serial-numbered RaineMaker Studio Certificate of Authenticity.

The original mask in this design has now sold but can be made to order. Please allow 6-8 weeks for a made-to-order mask to be completed before dispatch.
