This week I have decided to try my hand at sculpting. I always cast or throw and have never been able to get whats in my head to come out the way I want it to so it has been a challenge especially at this scale. I used a front profile and side profile and cut them out of ply to give my big block of clay a starter shape with guidelines. I have made it solid and will have to carve out the inside later to be able to fire it. I will add more photos once it is complete.
