Story Sculptures was my very first experience with clay. All and all I do like using it. I love the fact that If I mess up on something I can apply water and make it brand new again! One thing I did find difficult with this project, was actually coming up with what I wanted to do, what story did I want to tell this time? I choose the topic of becoming a designer because it is sort of frowned upon my family. After I figured out what story I wanted to tell it was pretty smooth sailing from there. I started with making my pink cushion which wasn't hard at all, then I moved to my thimble and my spool of thread. Making the dress makers doll was EXTREMELY HARD. So hard, that one of my classmates, Jason saw me struggling and created one for me! (How Sweet!) After he created the body all I had to do was attach the legs so it could stand, which wasn't to much more than some twisted wire and hot glue. After I made all these pieces that would go on top of my box, I began working on the sides. I left the front side blank and told my story on the back. On the sides I just did a design so it wouldn't look plain. After the kiln and pit fire process was over I got to see my story sculpture completely attached with the burn effect. I loved it so much just as is that I didn't feel it was necessary to selectively paint it. I spray painted my dress makers doll and attached it. Then I covered the entire piece with gloss to finish.
