Worn and weary

Using the leftovers. Finding clay that is not in perfect condition. Or working it so that it loses strength and falls in on itself. Working around unpredictable armatures: fruit in a bag, old dead branches, pushing the bottom of a worn clay vessel into a mould, using stamps so that they can rip the clay in unexpected places.

I cannot describe the fun of working in this way. Everything is torn and delicate. And once slightly harder I will be working into it again. These are all experiments. I have sketches and am building a plan. Tremendously satisfying stuff.
