the natural color of clay

Instead of coloring my sculptures, I’m writing this blogpost. I also have to confess I already had a tea break with a piece of my favorite chocolate. Still I’m not a work in my studio. The problem is that I’m struggling with the color schemes. And probably the gray weather outside isn’t really helpful. The last days I’ve been thinking over and over about possible color combinations. There’s nothing wrong with the natural color of the clay itself but I love layers of color!  I noticed I’m so often drawn to blue and green hues. So maybe writing about these “naked” sculptures will help me to see which colors suits them!

The colors have to strengthen the sculpture and add and extra layer of beauty and diversity to it. It can make or break the sculpture!

I haven’t decided yet the titles for these new ladies, but once they are finished I’m sure I’ll find an appropriate name for them! In the meanwhile just an impression. You might have to use some imagination as I still have to make the porcelain details to complete the sculptures. I thought you would just like to see a preview of my new figures!

Flying…

A hiding place for a bird’s nest…

Dancing with a flowery skipping-rope…

Catching butterflies…

Hula hoop with leaves in the autumn wind…

If you would have any suggestions about colors you would like to see on these ladies, I would love to hear about it!
