Happy New Year to you all! Here is a very small selection of some of the work made (and still being made) by my students at Stroud College:
Above: work in progress by Cath who is interpreting the term’s theme of ‘Still Life’ by looking at seeds.
Below: Ulla making a paperclay tree (some parts press moulded from plaster casts of twigs, some parts hand made) – far trickier and more time consuming than expected!
Above: Lindsay’s incredibly thin paperclay construction, made using bone dry 1-2mm thick sheets, scored and snapped like cardboard. Another labour of love using paperclay!
Above: Cath’s Matisse inspired stencil bowl and Steve’s fairy-tale woodland relief.
Below: Polly’s egg box casts, made with paperclay slip. Ready to be assembled into a lighting feature.
Above: Mike’s African figures and Caroline’s porcelain dipped dress.
Below: Rick contemplating his fabulous ‘bag of clay’ sculptures. I can’t wait to see how these forms develop and are exhibited.
