“ Earth I am, it is most true, disdain me not, for so are you.”
Using wet clay as a medium creates an immediate connection with the earth through a sensual touch and forces a personal connection with the subject. Whether the subject is a live model or a figure of the mind, a closeness develops during the sculpting process...a persona emerges and the figure evolves through your hands. Adding detail is a time intensive pleasure that prolongs and deepens that relationship.
