Workshop – Clay – Sculpting with Claire CurneenPosted: November 20, 2013
We were lucky enough to not only have a lecture from Claire Curneen (my favourite living artist), but for her to give us a workshop in the techniques she uses to sculpt with clay. Rather than coiling, Claire uses slabs which are then pinched together which we then used in order to make a tree sculpture.
I found the process relatively simple and intuitive, and Claire said I was “a natural” and “very talented” (I nearly died), and building inwards from my wide base allowed me to create a very tall tree (the tallest in fact) which towered over the rest.
