Questions to Ponder
Clay Creature Research.
Here are some images of 3-D creature sculptures. These will provide inspiration for our clay creature sculpture project.
This smooth creature has an interesting form. I like the smooth back and curving edges.
This little guy looks cute but he could bite a serious hole in your skin. I like the fuzzy texture made by scratching into the form.
This is a very interesting headless turtle critter with an entire city on its back. I like the abstract combination of multiple subjects: creature and city.
I like this series of creepy figures. They look like deformed fingertips with faces.
Although I don't think this sculpture is finished, I like the abstract bat form with a man's face.
This is Wallace and Gromit - famous clay cartoon creatures. You can see their site at http://www.wallaceandgromit.com.
