Sarah Money BA (Hons) Sculptor
I work predominantly with Crank Clay, which has a gritty texture to it.I like this clay because it allows me to sculpt in a loose style. The process, once I have completed sculpting, involves hollowing out and drying the piece, and then biscuit firing in the kiln. The sculpture is then glazed and stone fired.The aim of this process is to produce a glazed piece with some of the burnt stone fired clay showing through. Sometimes, after stone firing, instead of glazing, I hand paint the sculpture using different coloured paints, which I then sand down and apply more paint. This method gives a layered and stressed effect.
