heads in progress

Pillar / in progress, stack o’ heads. I have no idea if this will work, if they will be stable at completion, if they will work functionally or artistically. Yet I can only imagine what fun treasures each will eventually hold and what you will trust each to contain. I’ve been working with a different set of reference models for these three wee pots (they are VERY small) and I am loving the wide smiles and softer cheeks. . . . [image text: a set of three small white clay pinch pots, each stacked on top of each other although you can only see a small bit of the top pot as it is mostly out of frame. They sit on a dark charcoal work surface, littered with sculpting tools and surrounded with clear plastic in the background. Each of the bottom two pinch pots has a serene human face sculpted into it with open eyes, a nose, and lips.] . . #pinchpots #yyc #sculpture #facesculpture #humansculpture #facepot #headpot #pillar #ceramics #pottery #ceramik #ceramicprocess

finished head

November // this head had found its home so I’m now able to share photos. The matte surface worked out quite well on this one and I created a little matching dish for watering overflow. Pothos from @bigskyplantco [Image description: White clay pinch pot with a realistic eyes, nose, mouth sculpted on the front. Pot is perched on a matching white dish. Pot is surrounded by variegated pothos plant vines on a wooden slab.] . . #pinchpot #facepot #headpot #planter #pottery #ceramics #AlbertaArtist #CanadianCeramics #CanadianSculpture #Anatomy #SlowArt #handbuilding
