Hello!I am 8 bit is putting together a group show in L.A.
I have one ceramic sculpture in this show, if you are in L.A Please come and visit my little ceramic friend!
You can see more info at:
For this group show I made this
"ToTai Island Cave Seal Ritual Mask"
It's made out of Ceramic Clay --> Black and white slip--->Clear Glazed
Black Slip with clear glaze created a very nice deep blue. Finishing up making the headdress with colorful Pompoms.
<What is Cave seal ritual mask?!>
In ToTai Island (this is my imaginary island) every house owns their version of unique cave seal mask. When there is an event of the island or the family they put the mask on their door to announce. Depending on how headdress is display people in the island know exactly what the event is.
Here is some example!
Marriage in the family
Death in the family
Birth in the family
When the Island is in peace
When the Island is fighting with other tribe
Now you can visit ToTai Island and you know what's going on when you see the mask at someone's door!
