I just got the coolest email from a happy art buyer. This person bought one of my larger horse head sculptures last year at the Chatham Studio Tour.
I sculpted these horse heads from a slab, like most of my clay work. Roll it out with a rolling pin and slap it around a bit, then fold, crease, pinch and shape. These horse heads were made to sit upright…but I didn’t take it any further than that.
The client’s very clever husband did, though. He made a marble base and attached the sculpture to it. How fine is that?!
