Fresh new faces. I created this piece to compliment the first one, using a similar piece of wood, found at the same time. This time I have decided not to cover all of the areas that are missing bark, leaving some still exposed. I think the aesthetics of this work well as the centre of the wood has a very bright, contrasting colour and texture that makes the piece look raw and weathered, giving it more interesting dimensions. I love all the possibilities clay gives to create features with different characteristics. To me, both these pieces show how contrasting personalities can be interpreted through clay by using different sculpting techniques. I am still developing my skills to find my own unique style.
