Small Herd of Clay Animals

I made these little guys in summer 2019. They are 3-4″ tall. I was experimenting with animal forms. It’s an ongoing exploration.

Here is one fellow:

Another one: (who was left at Bryn Mawr College as an art drop-off)

Clay Animal 8-1912

and this one.

I think I have an orange one, too, but I don’t seem to have a photo. Maybe later on.

      Thank you. I was trying out some new animal forms. Don’t think I am totally happy with them (not their looks but that I can’t make them work out reliably yet) but these guys were the successes and I also thought they looked a little sheeplike, which I liked.

      Thank you. I have a serrated tool that makes these marks. I use it to connect pieces of clay together or to meld and shape, and on these guys, I liked how it looked and didn’t smooth it out when I finished. Plus it holds the glaze really well.
