A middle sized foetus
In the process of making a series of 'foetal' forms for display on silk. Either in the open air on silk or in giant glass jars. I don't want to cocoon these forms as they are designed to sit on a flat surface, so wouldn't be right all strung up.
Made the form in clay, then cast in red wax and secondly in white earthenware. The w. earthenware one is still drying, and will be glazed in a metallic or black gloss glaze. The opening on this one is my least favourite, as it is in the wrong place, and the shape looks like a hole that I'm trying to cover up. Thinking of ways to sort that out for display.
