Clay Wolf Tile

 

Clay and shoe polish (2012)

I attended a very fun sculpture class at ArtVenture this past spring, and this was the first of the three projects I completed. It involved laying out an image in a tile frame, then slowly filling it in from behind, ensuring no air was trapped in the inch or so of clay. I dramatized the topography by adding layers around the snout and eyebrows and carving rifts around the eyes, before adding a few fine details and a sparse coat of shoe polish.

This class was my first art course outside of middle/junior high school, and it was fantastic to learn new techniques and bounce ideas off of others who were similarly focused. Art is fun with friends!
