Clay ~10″

This piece was a bit of an experiment in terms of technique.  I do not normally use armatures in my sculptures, partly because if the technical problems of the clay shrinking and cracking when you put it over a static structure, and partly because it’s harder for me to “see” what the piece is going to look like when I just have the bare wires in front of me.  HOWEVER, I know I will never be able to scale beyond around 12″ to 18″ tall on figures unless I figure out how to support them.

This piece was mostly successful, though I did end up with a couple of cracks at some stress points.  This will take some more work to get it right.
