View Full Version : So new my hands are hardly dirty
08-22-2005, 12:08 PM
I watched a clay sclupture demo, then took a three-day workshop, and now I'm raring to go. No clay supply, yet, and not tools though I expect to have both within a week or two. I live in the boonies of east Texas with no easy access to supplies. I'm retired and have been a watercolor painter for a number of years. . . mostly figurative work. That's what I want to do with clay. I have no idea whether I have the talent for it but what little I've done has been great fun. I look forward to learning from you all.
Welcome Jerry. Seems to me you could get your materials online, deliverable no matter how far in the "boonies" you live. And those clay working tools would be easy to make, right? (Just get out the old jacknife and start whittling!)
Clay is a good, versatile medium. Good luck wiht it.

My theory is watercolorist make good sculptors especially in stone/wood because of the intuition factor. Welcome and good luck!
