This sculpture is finally finished. That is to say it's drying slowly under plastic waiting to be bisqued and glazed. These pictures show how after completing the piece, I slice it up and hollow it out. I make them solid so that I can manipulate the clay without the piece cracking or collapsing as I search for the right proportion and form.
The series of pieces that I'm currently working on will be on exhibit at Red Lodge Clay Center. http://www.redlodgeclaycenter.com/ I'm having a solo show titled "One head, Two bodies" which will consist of several sculptures and as many pots. I'll be at Red Lodge this summer for a three week residency and I'm lucky to be able to take my family along as well. I'm thrilled for the opportunity to rub shoulders with other artists and support such a great program.
