This is my most recent clay portrait. I did the modeling last fall during the DIVA Open Studios Tour over a period of two weekends. People came to visit my studio and watch me work with the model. Faire was a great model, and very generous with her time. I spent the rest of the winter finishing it, just firing it a few months ago.
One of my popular posts is how I hollow a clay model in preparation for firing. I have updated that post with in-progress pictures from Faire. You can see more of my portrait work here. As always, comments welcome.
