Equine artist working in 3D fine art sculpture. I both sculpt, mold, and cast my own pieces in earthenware and am working towards producing my own sculpture also in English fine bone china here in the USA. Since 2003 I have been custom glazing equine ceramics sculpted by other artists and produced in various ceramic media. See more of my work at hynpatty.com .

The Hidden Mask Series (HMS) is about surviving prolonged severe physical/emotional trauma. Specifically C-PTSI; Complex Post Trauma Injury (not "disorder"). Derived from different contextual episodes (i.e. from being an armed robbery hostage to domestic violence to severe mental health conditons to surviving natural disasters etc.) over an extended period of time. The "masks" are primarily "selfies". Intended to at least partially represent some of the journey toward a functional, stable, healing. Here is the link to text about each mask, on my website (blog section ) https://www.leeuceramics.com/single-post/hidden-mask-series-hms
Local clay from my area. Porous at cone 04, vitreous at 03, slumping and bloating at 02. Glazed on the inside, the exterior is bare clay with terra sigillata (made from the same clay). The darker pieces are reduction cooled. Blacks are from reduced iron, not carbon or smoke.
