Sculptures



Here are a couple sculptures by my friend J, he hand builds these with the coil method, which if you have ever done it, you know how difficult these shapes are to make. If you have never done it, trust me when I say these are amazing. I had a lovely day with my friends talking about art.
I did get some helpful tips and J gave me some ceramic magazines that I have been pouring over. After I do this post I am off to make more mugs. I cannot explain why I love working with clay so much, but really I think it is the great love of my life and though I have come to it later in my life, I am so happy I began. I hope to one day soon be able to do the sculptures in my head, but for now mugs are what I can manage :-).
Another day of bliss awaits :-). Happy Sunday! XOXO

What a lovely day you had. Just being able to communicate freely with other artists must feel so special. Mugs can be art too not just utilitarian. Should there be a distinction at all? What is the difference between a mug shaped sculpture and a sculptured mug? :-)

Stunning! These are wonderful to look at and let the mind wander over as to what they represent. The one looks to me like people embracing in unity. Would that we could...
