I'm excited because I just discovered Planet Sark http://www.planetsark.com/ My darling sister introduced me to wonderful books that encourage self-healing and creativity and joy by the author SARK. Sark is amazing, her writings, her art and when I read her books I so often find she's saying things I've said and thought myself. She has a real Aphrah outlook on the world. Aphrah is wonderful, if she had a website I'd link you to it. To find out who Sark is click the link in the right column and explore her world. I love the cat miaowing and purring in her mp3 files.

Kimba lying in Yangxee's basket while Yangxee looks on. The old story about a dog in a manger is wrong, our version is the cat in a dog's bed.

This sculpture lost its arms, legs and head. Now I know why they made this limbless torsos hundreds of years ago, because the limbs fall off.
I modelled this lady using 325 stoneware clay, learning the hard way that this type of clay is not the best for sculpting, much better suited to wheel throwing. So far I've found earthenware clay, Paperclay and Terracotta best for sculpting. I'm not really satisfied with this work. Maybe it will improve with firing and glazing. (ps this sculpture's limbs broke off as you can see in an image below, well to be honest one leg broke and then I got cranky and knocked the other bits off)
Here's my most recent work from Friday's Life sculpting session. I find male models more difficult to sculpt than the females.
