Relief tiles

I learned so much at Val webb's tile carving workshop on Saturday, plus I met some really nice people. One gal named Billie M. and I were eyeing each other and finally figured out that we had a clay class together about fourteen years ago! Anyway these are my tiles which are the same clay but at different points of dryness (the darker is further along). I took my drawings from figure drawing on Thursday and shrank them down on a copy machine and then added a cool curvy art border. I haven't ever done extractive sculpting, only additive,which is more in line with painting actually if you think about it. This clay will dry very slowly and then be fired twice, once for bisque and then with a glaze. stay cool. Best, Lydia
