Progress working in clay

This is the continuing saga of the evolving head.  The photos posted here take the clay head from detail refinement in wet clay to bisque firing at cone 04.  It’s still just a head with no context. I’m at the place in the process where I need to let the piece develop a vocabulary.  Much like the approach used to create a two dimensional collage, this piece will become part of a mixed media assemblage.  My next post will include the steps along intuitive path to completion.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
