Yesterday I went to NJ Ceramic supply and got some clay and made this girl. She is very statuesque (bulky) as I will have to practice on getting the thinness of the wrists and ankles but I do like her gigantic proportions coupled with a tiny face and really big hair!
In the spirit of keeping my with my style (the whimsical/novelty theme), there will be three birds on her knee (trinity), and a rose on her hip.
I would like to take you through all the processes from this wet stage, to leather hard, bone dry, bisque, and finally glaze. Its very exciting to be making ceramic work again.
