Process: Sculpture Project 3
This week I continued work on my sculpture, building the various parts of the tree. Unfortunately, as usual, my progress with clay was slower than I anticipated and wanted, which is very frustrating at times. However, I think I am making very real progress, and as I figure out my process, it has become a lot easier and quicker. I want to add two more major branches, and a couple small pieces that I will probably attach with the high-fire wire. I think my major concern at this point is finishing in time to fire and glaze the piece, as well as the question of texture. I think the texture of the clay will be the aspect that makes the piece most resemble a tree, and thats not something I've perfected or even really figured out at all yet. I have a couple ideas involving scoring or scratching the surface lightly, but I'm not sure yet which way to go.
I'm excited to move on to the next part of this process - constructing the frame and figuring out exactly how to suspend the tree.
