A little wire, a little slip and one porcelain leaf
This piece looks a little space alien. At this point I wanted to have leaves over and hanging from the face. To make sure they will adhere without dropping off I needed to wire the hanging ones.
It is very delicate thing to push wire into these little leaves. Better to push the wire into the back, cover with slip, add little coil, smooth, add details.
I continued the un-wired leaves around the back of the head. The head also detaches. It is the only way I can work around the head. Later I will epoxy it permanently to the torso.
