my cute little owl

is my first finished project in my sculpture class!

first we had to choose an animal .
then we had to make a maquette out of clay.
next we poured our plaster into 1/2-gallon waxed cartons,
and once the plaster was set we started chipping away with
chisel & hammer… till our little animals were shaped.
last we let it air dry and sanded away.

this project was so fun for me, total therapy to attend class and work on my little owl. i could make plaster owls all semester. how cute would a whole set be!?!

now we’re working on clay figures of the head, i.e. ears, eyes, nose, mouth. i really am not good at the new project.

next week we start sculpting our own heads!
