After the success of Oom Manie I embarked on making portrait sculptures in Cement. However I did not intend to make a portrait of an existing person, but rather of a feeling, or moment. For the next portrait I choose to remake one of my older ceramic sculptures of a girl enjoying a picnic. This remake was done in 1:4 scale, the same as Oom Manie. I choose to call her Lucy for it is a light, happy moment. Lucy is in an edition of 20.
Lucy \l(u)-cy\ as a girl's name is pronounced LOO-see. It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Lucy is "light". Feminine form of Lucius; vernacular form of Lucia. The feast day of Saint Lucy (fourth century), patroness of sight, is called the Festival of Light in Sweden.
