Narrative Animal Sculpture with Lisa Naples

Narrative Animal Sculpture DVD by Lisa Naples

$59.95 – Run Time: 2 Hours 20 Minutes

Animals have long been used as symbols in storytelling all around the world, and visual artists have been using animal figures in artwork for just as long. In this installment of the Ceramic Arts Daily Presents Video Series, Lisa Naples shares her insights and techniques on sculpting animals in clay to tell stories. She begins with a mixed media project, explaining not only the ins and outs of sculpting convincing mammal forms in clay, but also the technical issues of building clay pieces to successfully mesh with non clay materials. She also explores the process of pairing animal parts with pottery forms, creating a sculptural bird vase. In addition, Lisa shows how to make the figures come alive through her fabulous brush work and dry-brush slip application. Throughout the video, Lisa shares her insights on how to play with ideas and incorporate symbolism and meaning into your work.
