What it takes to make a sculpture

A figure is made by developing an idea. The subject can be almost anything. Allegory, genre, classic or realism. Visual myth making, story telling or an iconic figure. Realism respects the actual way people are not an idealized vision. Working from life with respect to the finite differences between the human species.

A figure is made of clay, with or without an armature for support. The form of the sculpture can be either naturalistic, grounded in the expert knowledge of human anatomy or abstract, working with the general form and finding the expressive movements. Each artist needs to find his or her own voice or style.
