Framed original cyanotype on porcelain. Hand-brush coated. Printed on hand-shaped bisque fired porcelain disk.
This artwork was inspired by pioneering pilot and adventurer extraordinaire Amelia Earhart. Defying gender roles, she built an unorthodox career in a man’s world; she was a compelling force in aviation and women’s rights; diversified her career with lectures, writing, and business ventures. Earhart dared to be different, an inspiring role model for women and one of the most famous flyers of her day.
Bust Of Amelia (Study On Porcelain) was created by constructing a hand-cut collage using female photographic portraiture and hand-drawn illustrations of birds.
After coating the bisque fired porcelain disk with light-sensitive chemistry, it is left to dry in a dark room. The large scale negative is then contact printed onto the porcelain by exposing to daylight (UV rays). The print is then processed by thoroughly washing in water to remove any unexposed solution and left to soak for 3-4 weeks. It can then be left to dry, developing to full density Prussian blue after 24 hours.
