Clay Sculptures with Marilee Stockman
Sunday, Feb. 8th 11am-5pm $100 each includes clay
Students will be sculpting two terracotta clay sculptures in this new class with ceramic artist Marilee. One will be a figure while the other can be any animal you choose including fish, horse, birds or anything you can imagine. You are welcome to bring inspiration for a good form for your animal sculpture.
You will learn to make an armature (clay figure), how to work with wet clay, how to use clay tools and build a sculpture. How to finish the clay sculpture and a discussion of the finishes for the fired pieces.
The workshop is designed for students at all levels. Beginners are welcome. You will be able to choose projects based on your skill level and comfort.
Boxwood sculpting tools -they sometimes come in a set, if not pick out a couple in different shapes.
Wire end sculpting tool - one with a rounded end – it should have another wire shape on the other end.
Wire clay cutting tool – this has 2 small wooden pegs on each end with a wire in between.
Bring some ideas such as: animal, fish, etc. One sculpture will be a figure and one will be your idea. I will be demonstrating a horse and you may do that along with me.
The sources for the clay tools are: Michaels or you may place an order with me before the Jan. 20. Optional - an inexpensive Rubbermaid turntable or other any other brand will do.
