Patterned Recline, clay drawing
"Patterned Recline" is a drawing on a clay slab. The clay measures 7 1/8" x 9" x 1/4" and I mounted the clay on primed birch hardboard painting panel. This panel is 10" x 8" and 1 3/4" deep (projection from the wall). This piece does not require framing, but can be framed if desired. The hardboard panel box is painted black.
I incorporated 3 linen cord french knots into the clay surface and through the box support.
This is terra cotta clay, fired twice with a glaze firing. The glaze is a gloss and the coloration is a deep khaki and rust.
The subject matter is figurative; a female model in the studio, nude.
