With gentle curves, beautiful angles and an array of expressions’ the human form is amazing. Using clay to mold the likeness of the human figures is indeed a challenge. I am fascinated and enchanted with the process of molding clay into female figurative sculptures. My “girls” are hand-built using white earthenware. Each figure’s shape, expression, curves, texture, and movement emerge from the clay and are seated, standing or prone in realistic positions. Each sculpture is one of a kind and is created to reflect a posed, inner calm, self-confidence, and a degree of sensitivity to engage the viewer. The clothing reflects my love of fashion and textured material. Many of the poses also reflect my study of yoga. Each clay sculpture is finished with a clear glaze or bronze patina. A person smiling while observing and enjoying my work gives me a great personal satisfaction. Thanks to the encouragement of my husband, Doug, and friends, I am making progress. . . one figure at a time.
