NOTES ON MY CERAMIC SCULPTURES
The sculpture on this stamp is a work that I created from clay with high grog content. The surface colors are oxides. I use no molds. Each sculpture is a unique creation.
The Sea Dragon is a very ancient Goddess concept. Tiamat, for whom the Red Sea is named, an ancient Mesopotamian Goddess was typified as a sea dragoness. She was composed partly of shell.
