Works in progress

Here’s a glimpse into some of the new figurative work I’m exploring. The first is a paper clay form. Here it is in the sculpting stage:

Here it is, brushed with underglaze and ready to be loaded into the gas kiln for the final firing:

The second piece is stoneware with porcelain glazing and porcelain winged forms around the head. This one is still in the greenware stage. The wax circles on the cheeks allowed the stoneware to show through in those areas when I was applying the porcelain glazing.

Exploring figurative content is feeling rewarding and so challenging!
