"Rest On My Shoulder" Figurative Paperclay On Silverplate


It's A Bit Like Being At A New Restaurant And Wanting To Try Everything On The Menu.  Playing With Clay And Learning All The Do's And Don'ts Is Much The Same.


Initially I Created The Form For This Piece That Included Rabbit Ears.  I'll Include A Photo To Show Y'all How In The End They Just Didn't Seem To Fit.



So I Carved Them Back And Added A Hat.  I Suppose I Have A Thing For Hats.  I Love To Put Them On My Women When Painting, And Guess They've Now Found Their Way Onto These New Clay Figures.


I Gave This Figure A Lit'l Tummy And Some Curvy Hips.  I Almost Left Her Undressed..But Thought Better Of It.  Besides, I Like Coming Up With Cute Outfits And Think This One Fits The Character Of This Piece Nicely.


So There You Have It.  My Second Effort With Clay.  I Needed Something New ~ And I'm Enjoying The Feel And The Progression This Media Is Connecting Me To. 

Hope Everyone Has A Wonderful Weekend Ahead!

Sending You All A Lit'l Love & Georgia Sunshine,

Terri

I always love the way you re-invent old things that are common household items...this is no exception! Love it, and the re-purposing of the candle holder...

Blessings sweet Georgia friend!
