athena, the warrior goddess ceramic sculpture for sale by rachel santel

“Athena, the Warrior Goddess”

Inspiration & Technique

Using a water based clay, I sculpted a bust, then fired her. Most people don’t know, but when you do a bust, you must hollow out the form by splitting it in half, then re-joining it. It’s a pain-staking process. Then, slowly, I dried them out, which took a month or so. It was fired in a kiln to about 1900 degrees.¬†After it was taken out of the kiln, I sanded it down, applied three coats of a glaze, and then re-fired it. Finally, I gilded her headdress and hair.

Athena is the warrior goddess. My second sculpture, I wanted her to look mostly androgynous and looking to the right.
