Elaine Bolz (Corrales)

Elaine sculpts her masks out of white earthenware clay. After being bisque fired, she airbrushes and paints them with underglazes and then glazes each piece. This process involves at least two firings.

“I have a fascination with natural forms and imagery, and love texture and color,” Elaine says. “I try to combine these elements using clay as a medium.” 

Her goal is to create sculptural work in which the natural world is viewed as “marvelous and beautiful; as something to be honored and protected. My desire is to produce pieces that have beauty, fantasy, and an element of soft surprise.”
