Small Ladies in Clay

Here is some more recent clay work.

This crowd consists of small lady figurines about 4″ tall, done in terracotta clay fired at cone 05. I created them in the same manner as the larger clay lady figurines – made the figures, let them dry a bit, painted their dresses with Velvet underglazes, incised lines as I thought looked good, and then fired them. That’s it!

    Beautiful little ladies, I love them all, you brought a big smile to me this morning. Do you sell these wonderful ladies?

    I’m glad you like them. There is something about their small size and yet they have a little attitude…

    No, I don’t sell them, since I only give them away. Sounds strange, maybe, but that’s it. If you see any you want, I’ll send them to you if you’ll pay the postage. Let me know if you want to do this –

    Yes. I am returning to childhood the older I get, in a good way I hope, and to me this is such fun, making these little figures and using these materials.
