Artist Q&A

Explain the techniques used.
The clay form was made in a drape form mold. The mold was made by cutting an irregular hole in a piece
of plywood. Then fabric was draped into the hole and stapled into place. Next I threw a thick slab of clay,
draped it in to the fabric sling and formed the contours with my hands. I left the clay in the mold until it was
bone dry then removed, refined and fired the piece. I have found that this is my most successful method for
creating organic forms.
