Capstone Sculpture - Carleen

Capstone Sculpture – Carleen

I’m posting an older piece of mine here on a ‘fan’ request, this is image 3 of 3 showing my capstone show. This is the sculpture that accompanied the portrait I’ve posted. This sculpture is about 10″ inches high and is made from terra-cotta clay. The clay is a strong body and holds up nice for making hollow type sculptures like this. The figure is constructed from slab rolled clay. I take flat pieces of clay, and cut rectangles of specific sizes out of the clay, then roll them to make tube forms and assemble a figure. I played with several different forms, some more whimsical and some less defined, but I settled on this style for each of the five pieces of the original series.
