Another mask for a giant

Now I am in the groove. That means I create more and more with relative ease. They will come to me. How wonderful! However, some labour always comes with physical pain!

I made another mask for a giant. Mike is holding it for me, and Topaz is wonderfing what we were doing.

These hairy arms are not mine, Mike's! :D  Hairy back is Topaz's. 

This is how I have made it.

One dark night I started with this ring. Magical!





And I layered the clay on top.





Just continued. 



Then suddenly it looks like a chamber pot! 



Now checking the form and height at the same time. Did you notice it made babies? 


The closing is tricky.



Now it started looking like a pupee.


Whist waiting for clay dries. I made an ear. Huge! 


To finish closing, this torture device was installed. Mike calls it a prayer.



Tada" A scary huge mask. Not finished yet.  


Now finished.

    1. I made them! :D It is difficult to make cracks on coiled pieces. Smaller ones are pinched, so they come naturally. But coiled ones tend to crack at joints and they don't look natural!

  4. I love the the potential of little clay rolls !
    Recently I started from the small roller and finished with the great vase.
    I could not stop to smell interior.
    I could smell the ocean , Earth , Nature .
    Do you also smell your Giants during your work? :)
    warm regards

    1. Hahaha! I don't enjoy the smell of clay. I don't like the sweet smell; it must be bacteria! But when I put my head into it to work, I couldn't help smelling it! :D
