Christine was inspired to create the Friends' Faces series so that she might explore the subtle qualities of self-awareness and particular expressions of love and friendship. Though faces of friends and family inform Christine's sculptures, generally no one person has been reproduced exactly in clay. Instead, many faces influence her work. Each face in the Friends' Faces series is original and unique. Faces are either mounted on handmade plaques or in frames and are accented by complimentary fabric and paper. All pieces are prepared for wall hanging.

Small details were added post firing in paint. The frame dimensions are 6.5" square x 2.25" high. The frame is equipped with picture hanging wire for easy display. This is available for purchase.
