Fun with Clay

I did this out of clay - it was my first go at it! It's kids clay, and it's really fun to play with! It was an assignment in high school last April. To make it, I first made a base out of wire and then I built up the clay around the base. I had a time limit, so I didn't get to spend as much time as I wanted to on her...only a few hours. I was so mad when I baked her. I didn't make her sturdy enough, so she got a bit warped and bent over after being subjected to that extreme heat.

Still, it was a very fun experience and I'd like to try again sometime. Perhaps I should take my time to make a good base and carefully mold it. I can make a clay Jude! Art is such a bang.
