More Art Camp Claudia McGill results. Here are some figurines – two ladies and a cat. The ladies are in the wet-clay stage; I don’t seem to have a photo of the cat.
Wait! Yes, I do.
Here are the figurines, waiting to be unloaded from the kiln.
And here are the lady figurines in final form. Now, the one with her arms at her sides, that’s a form I’ve made many times before. The one with her arms flung out, I’ve never made one like that, and I like it. As far as glazing them, I did them the same way as the figurine in the previous post, including the flung-out arms one getting a partial washoff due to excessively fussy dress decoration.
I’m not thrilled with the way their faces came out – they look ghoulish, with the stark white clay and black details – I think this style of face works better with the softer tones of the stoneware clay I have used in the past. Still, I like them. They know who they are.
The cat got a simple styling – I painted it black all over with Velvet underglaze and then washed it off, leaving the details. Enough said. Cats always know who they are.
