Clay Creatures

Here are some clay creatures made in September, 2020.

First up, this three-legged insect creature. He’s maybe 8 inches tall or so.

You may remember the puff people I used to make – in the dozens, if not hundreds. Here are a couple, to remind you.

Here is a variation on that theme.

For both of these new creatures, I used sgraffito and scratching techniques as well as using clay stamps I made myself. The eyes in particular were made with a stamp.

How about a drama shot, to end the post?

      Thank you. At first I was disappointed in the glazes but now I realized they are right for the pieces – my usual crazy colorful style would detract from the structure of these guys. I will say it was fun to make them, devising all their little body parts!

      Thank you! I think they turned out well, better than I was hoping (because as you know, you never really can anticipate what the clay will decide to do…)
