Working on 2 new sculptures

Well, actually I have been working on 4 sculptures.  Two of them ended up as casualties 🙂

By the time I had made and recycled the second one, I had worked out how to keep them balanced and weighted at the bottom to make them support themselves.  All part of the process of getting it from the brain, to the paper, to the clay.

Hoping to have them ready for the pop up gallery in Paeroa but don’t want to force the drying time on these so not too sure.

Just have the hearts growing in the pinch pots to go on them now, I am thinking “nurture” and “grow” do they need a name though?

Clay recycling day

Its not glamorous but needs must.  As usual, i’m feeling inspired before having recycled the clay. C’est La Vie.DSC02038
When i’m recycling the white clay i always wonder if it would also make a good facemask for the pores?
Overnight in the plaster bowl and it should be ready to wedge, though i’m not sure where I will be doing that since i broke my trusty plaster slab a few days ago. I feel another project coming on.
