Clay

 

For my sculptures, I use mid/high fire clay to hand build female figures. I usually add feminine touches, such as flowers and vines sculpted from clay, to each piece, or I free-hand paint flowering vines, female faces, and quotes onto the sculptures’ skin, similar to colorful tattoos. On some pieces, I use layer upon layer of colorful acrylics to decorate the figures, allowing for more detailed painting techniques similar to painting on a canvas.

On other pieces, I paint the figures with color-saturated underglazes, while highlighting some of the flowering vines with translucent overglazes, giving each piece a mix of glossy and soft sheen watercolor finishes.

The sculptures’ faces are pensive and expressive. They project determination, joy, peacefulness, or wistfulness.
