Moving along! She's starting to get some height now, hip on one side! Somehow I managed to forget my tape so I'll have to figure out exactly where the directional change goes on the hip later, but the mass of clay is building. I'm much happier with it now that I've redone some! Best of all I've figured out a relatively easy way to handle it if I need to re position again. Turns out the 'easy' way I was thinking before... isn't! I had to totally rework one leg, but it went back together easier than I was dreading.
Clay has always fascinated me, its many colors and textures, the shapes you can create using it, even the feel of it squishing in my hand. Even after years of playing in the mud I find myself exploring new ideas and I hope my work shows this.
