After taking the mold from my nude "Sierra Leone" sculpture, the clay figure was left fairly intact. Over several years I slowly "draped" her, diaphanously, with more clay. She became more mountain-like and more alluring. I LOVED the challenge of sculpting the very sheer fabric covering the nude body.
A nocturne is a work of art or music with a night theme. A sierra is a mountain and sounds suspiciously like my model's name, Sarah.
