Working Practices

I work with two types of commercially-available clay that are particularly suited to sculpture. One is T-Material, a very robust grogged clay which barely shrinks or warps. The other is porcelain flax clay (a type of paper clay), which can be worked wet or dry. The T-Material is best-suited to single figures and small groups, the porcelain to more elaborate work composed of many different elements.

I don’t use armatures with either clay. Most pieces are made around a hollow core form which is allowed to dry leather hard so that it can support the rest of the piece. I also use various types of scaffolding to support work as it dries.

All my work is fired in a Rhode electric kiln, which gives the predictable results required for narrative sculpture.
