Antiques in the Making - Porcelain People

Kit Smithson    -

I love working with clay, cloth, fiber and wood. These sculptures combine aspects of all four, and I'm never bored working with them.

I make an original sculpture from clay, make a mold of it, then pour the mold in porcelain. When the greenware is dried and cleaned, it's fired in a kiln. Each different paint color is separately fired, so each piece goes through the kiln process 5 to 8 times.

I finish a maximum of 10 pieces of each face. Each is dressed differently, with different props and stance, and each develops it's own personality.
