In June 2019 I made three tall women figurines. I love how they turned out, and I loved making them. It is important to me to create such figures. I try to convey strength, humor, and resilience in each one.
I decided to give each one an individual post and then I’ll show them to you as a group.
The figurine is about 15″ tall, made of lowfire white clay fired at cone 06, colored with Velvet underglazes.
She’s lovely. She has a very serene quality to her and I like the curve of her arms.
Thank you. Regarding the arms, I can never look at these, or similar work I’ve done in the past, without thinking about how the clay felt to shape the curves, and here it is now, frozen and hard. There is just something about that quality with clay that really appeals to me, the transformation of malleable into set and formed.
