Mask Work

Ottawa-based photographer Lesia Maruschak commissioned me to make a mask for a series she's working on. She sent me the design and I sculpted, cast, filled the mold, painted the mask. It leaves here tomorrow.

Lesia asked me to document all of the steps in my mask-making process for her, and it became fascinating to me. I was hyper aware of each step and the time that went into each step - steps that I've taken so many times that they're almost second nature (I've got hundreds and hundreds of molds in my basement). I can't wait to see what she does with the mask.
