Kim Schoenberger - T

Being totally focused on preparations for my next exhibition and the extremely wet weather, I am now seriously lagging behind. We're already into December and I haven't finished the November letters... eeek, starting to feel a little under pressure. Especially now I am seeing everyone posting the last lot of letters up to Z!!!!

T - Carving

Seeing all the common techniques I am familiar with have been used, I'm starting to use the same techniques in previous letters in a different manner, thinking outside the norm if practically possible.

Here I'm carving the clay out around the letter to create a three dimensional 'T', much more challenging than the A and N, where A I carved directly around the outline and N carved within the outline resulting a negative letter.

Sanded and ready for bisque.

Wow - you've done really well to carve out all that clay and leave such a perfect 'T" Kim. Edging closer to the final set!
