Here are different angles of another sculptural piece in process. I was particularly drawn to the lines and angles of this figure as it formed and wanted to capture a silhouette more or less. The process of shaping clay is very soothing for me. I imagine it must be a little bit like whittling wood. One could become mesmerized with the feel of the form if that makes sense. Because clay is made of earth, it somehow grounds me and I breathe easier when my hands are dirty:)
Enjoy your day-
P.S. Some of you have asked about the other sculpture I was working on….it broke in the greenware stage, but I’m repairing it and will bisque fire it with this one early next week. I’ll keep you posted.
