With the plaster cast ready to go, it's time to make the sculpture. For this piece I used low-fire white clay with grog, sliped and scored the seams, reinforced with coils when necessary, and dried it extremely slowly under a layer of plastic. I used the basic clay tools: a bowl of slip, serrated rib, rubber kidney, sponge, and stick tool. (Nope, I didn't use a slab roller or even a rolling pin- I 'throw out' my slabs by hand). If you have any questions or comments about the process, please feel free to post them at the bottom of the page or on my contacts page.
