Working from live models for Ceramics.

Modelling for ceramics. Two 2-hour sessions are not enough so I end up; working from photos.Today in my ceramics class I worked on a number of pieces: two models (Mory, the ceramics technician who acted as model for a change, and Bogana, a fellow ceramics student), a lamp in the shape of a mosque (a better one than the one I made previously) and a carved dish. They are in various stages of production. 

I began work on both models before the Summer break, so had to take care to keep them moist over several weeks (so that the clay remained workable). Each was wrapped in a moist cloth and then further wrapped with two layers of cling film. Bogana kindly did not dry out as much as my model of Mory, the ceramics technician, so I worked on her today. 

Unfortunately we only have the models for two or three periods of two hours, so I end up working from photos which can be frustrating at times when you can't see the detail.
