Almost 40 years ago, I created my first clay sculpture of a female bust. For the last 20 years I have been painting and illustrating, but there was always a part of me who wanted to get back to sculpting. Here is my first piece. Created with natural air dry clay (doesn’t need to be fired). I am learning a lot about all different types of clays and experimenting with them.
I am also playing with a style called bas-relief sculpting, shown below. It’s as old as time. I will be going back and forth between these two styles for the next while.
