ZEMORA: One who knows the way

Mask design (project ongoing)




The process:

  • sculpt the preliminary study of the mask with modelling clay

  • prepare the paper clay (papier-mâché) with leftover pulp from my recycled handmade paper making process 🌿♻️💚

  • add an initial layer of papier-mâché to the modelling clay base

  • add more refined papier-mâché to define the facial features

  • remove modelling clay from dried mask

  • sand, seal, paint and add details

Sometimes I work on multiple projects at the same time. Imani, another mask can be seen in the photos above.


Zemora was also featured in an installation piece I did for Nuit Blanche 2020. You can check that project post here.
