Short Busy Day, Long Dark Night
At ceramics studio this afternoon Maya finished under-glazing her fox sculpture. These three views show it in its unfinished state with the under-glaze on but not yet fired. You can see the fluffy fox tail as well as the front feet. This fox is sitting up. Maya made it from a ball of red-brown clay. She has a good feel for form. She draws foxes a lot, and when she formed this piece she pulled on ideas she has about foxiness from all those drawings. The little bag is one I made today to fill an order. It's made out of an Urban Outfitters carrying bag and has a green horse bag lining, tres chic with its tiny white metal chain for a shoulder strap.
