the glove

I was sick in March quite badly and had to stop my practice of becoming a boxer for 3 weeks. As a soothing exercise and to bring to reality desired pair of new gloves I decided to sculpt one.

Maybe making representational pieces is far too easy. Who would say they don't want an easy life?

Technical challenge of ceramics practice however representational it is is a big deal after 3 years of dealing with the medium. The glove is coiled and empty inside. I love the reslults with earthstone smooth clay. Glazing is the next step.
