I have had the nagging feeling that it's been a long time since I posted on my blogsite. When I checked in I saw the evidence of how long it's been. The entry about building in sections showed the headless piece I was working on at the time. that pice is finished, fired, photographed and entered in a show.What I learned about this piece is that in adding the heads, I changed the nature of it. the single slab that holds the mask-like faces created a bond between the figures. The clay continues to inform me and impose it's will.
I want to include you in my process. The ideas start as a glimmer at the back of my brain that eventually become drawings in my sketchbook. Between the drawings and the finished stage of the work a lot of magic happens that I can never fully explain.
