Recent Clay Work #4 From May 2018

More clay work from May 2018. These are rectangle people. Done in white clay, colored with Velvet underglaze, and fired at cone 06.

These people were constructed by rolling out slabs, cutting them to size, building a rectangular box, and adding a head.

In this group the two on the left were made in the same way as the previous figurines. The one on the right was formed by rolling a cylinder and then using a paddle to form it into a rectangle. You can see the curved end of the original slab as a curve across its body front (if this explanation is confusing, take a look at the cylinder people here).

And here are some details of the color work.

    Thank you. That makes my day, I hope to do just what you said, so that people can look at my work over time and still find the piece fresh and with a lot to enjoy.

    Thank you. I’ve been a dabbler in clay for a long while, and I have in mind to try to get more skilled at it in the coming years. Thank you!
