CERAMIC SCULPTURE

by Laura Sturtz / Twin Creek Studio

The sculpture shown here are original ceramic sculptures by Laura Sturtz. All are 'one-of-a-kind'. Laura believes that art should be part of everyday life, and thus designs these sculptures to fit comfortably into any home. They may relax on your coffee table, end table, or sit on a shelf.

"Making these life sculptures is one of my very favorite things to do", says the artist. She considers them 'sketches', as the model may pose for as short a time as 15 minutes, but never longer than 1 1/2 hours. Working directly with soft clay, these sculptures are first made solid. Laura lets the pieces air dry for about a day and then hollows them out, often needing to cut off body parts to permit hollowing, and then reattaches these parts. Then she spends time adjusting, modifying, refining, and finishing the figures.When the clay is totally dry, the pieces are fired to 1940 degrees fahrenheit. Some of the sculptures are painted with glaze and fired again. The 'terra cotta' sculptures are finished with oxides and wax.

All measurements are approximate. Abbreviations: h-t = head to toe, f-b = front to back, w = wide, d = deep, h = height, NA = not available

These nude sculptures are complete human figures and are not neutered. The artist believes the human form, as part of nature, is quite beautiful. If you find nude figures objectionable, then do not visit the sculpture pages here.
