Have your portrait made in two hours. Saskia has made dozens of portraits, of well known people and of unknown people, of grown-ups and children, even of people that are dearly missed. They have been bought by fathers and mothers, by husbands and wives, by art lovers and collectors. After these two hours your portrait needs to dry, be colored, fired, glazed, fired and fired raku which will take about 6 weeks. The two hours will suffice to make your portrait when you are modeling for Saskia.
Reasons to have your portrait made;
# We're making selfies all the time, why not a three dimensional portrait for a change? # I like to show who I am # I am really curious how Saskia will make my portrait # I like to have an artwork that will last a lifetime (and longer) and I love to be the subject # I am very beautiful right now and I will not get any younger for sure # It is very affordable so I like to take the chance # I just love portraits and want to put my own in between all the ones I have already # I like forming new traditions and this one will be the newest in our family # I am very important for the company I founded and I want them to remember me once I am gone # I only own two dimensional portraits and I am very curious of a three dimensional one # I love the portraits Saskia makes # I love to keep an imaginary eye on things!
And reasons to have a portrait made of the one you love:
#the kids grow up so fast, I like to have a memory of how they are now # I love her so much and it is really hard to miss her when she is off for a week # You can't compare a three dimensional portrait with a picture. I can touch it and feel it and it makes way for remembering my beloved in another way than a picture # My beloved has this real nice head, really worthwhile monumentalizing # My beloved is someone really special and everyone should know. Therefor I want to have this portrait made # a three dimensional portrait used to be only for the rich and famous. The portraits Saskia makes are affordable and nice, nicer to me than a portrait of just any rich or famous person # I have this wall filled with pictures, a three dimensional portrait will be a nice addition # the portraits Saskia makes are very alive. The fact that they are spacial makes it more real # I love sculpture. The fact I can have a portrait made of someone I love is really special to me # when I watch the portrait of my beloved I remember so many things we did together, it just opens a flow of stories.
