Air-Dry Clay – Sculpture Example #3
Abstract Figure Sculpture
Air-dry clay works well for abstract figures – unlike fired water-based clay, an internal wire armature can be permanently incorporated. As an example, see my sculpture “Shadow Spirit” below – purchased by a collector at last year’s Open Studios San Diego run by The Studio Door gallery.
As another example, “Willow Spirit”, curated by Sparks Gallery owner for exhibition in the PHYSIQUE show. Pictures of the sculpture detail show the metallic patina capabilities of the material.
Join us in this workshop of sculpting using high quality air-dry clay with the incorporation of found objects. It will take place at my San Diego Artist Retreat studio in Fallbrook next month.
