Some months ago, was a period when I decided to stop working and to take up a clay modeling course. It's not pottery type of clay but more fun like figurine making like dolls, flowers, tissue box, clocks, music boxes and etc. The centre I went to actually do have a professional artist that specializes in clay design. His art acquires techniques and his precision skill in detail is amazing.
My 1st clay project was to make a tissue box. the box was a ready made box but painted with oil paint for the start. Then I adorned the box with all clay art - pumpkins and leaves, timber fencing and a grey rabbit on top, munching away a tiny pumpkin. I love it to bits. What do you think?
