Sculpture People/Advanced Pottery

Student in my class at Penland. (Cristina Cordova workshop)
Cristina Cordova working on a head. Adding white clay to red, like we are doing in class.

Close up. Remember that loading a stiff brush with white clay and painting in the direction of the muscles will make the face look more realistic.
Remember to have a mirror, photographs, and an anatomical image with muscle details in front of you while you are working.

Pay attention to details. Look at the line of the lips. They are not straight. Why not? Because of the muscles under the skin.

Sculpture People-

Completed by Wednesday!
At the absolute latest!!!!

-one eye
-two eyes

After completing the above try various surface finishing techniques on your face tiles
-cold finishing
-sandblast back glaze/watercolor/ acrylic oil

Remember, influences (artists) must be included in blog and I-Book
Sketches/Photograph of facial expressions
Plan! Plan! Plan!
Will you use real hair? Is technical more important than concept? Why? What is the focus/idea?

Torsos must have arms/ It's always a good idea to practice small and then switch to a larger sculpture!

Look at the sculpture images I have included on the website! Import images into your blog.
I now have an I-Flip camera, so if you would like to include video clips of work in progress that is now possible! Yippee! ( I think this is quite exciting!)

Look at the following websites:
