I hope to show you my making/ panic process and see if I can begin to evolve my making process and to make it more streamlined.
After a large order from Monsieur Kettles, I have approximately 200kg of clay and this week I have borrowed the facilities at my work to roll out slabs and make extra plaster slabs to work on. Couple this with the better weather and a new bottle of Butane in my gas heater - I seem to be getting on fine today.
- Decide on shape profiles of feet and cut out
|Sketchy - with G+T in middle|
- Decide on depth of shoes and cut strips of rolled clay to start making 3D shapes
And so the production line begins... I have decided on 17 figures; 9 Ceilidh People and 8 Fisher People.
I am also making 2 figures for the Aberdeen Artists Exhibition (with any luck)
|Canvas covered slabs|
|cutting the pieces for all the feet before scratching and slipping together and reinforcing the joins|
|ready for fashioning the tops tomorrow|
