La Madonna

La Madonna got her name because of her blue hair, the same color as the fabric mother Maria wears on her head. In La Madonna the artist combines two contrasts: the static yellowish base, almost like a vase, with the blue loose separated parts of her hairstyle. Those parts look like rubber but they are, just as the rest, ceramic elements.  The technical job of glazing those loose parts was complicated, jet very satisfying when the sculpture came out of the kiln after this glazing fire. 

The size of La Madonna is 51 x 20 x 19 cm.
