Sacred lotus seedpod, clay sculpture

Lotus seedpod painted clay sculpture

Here are my excuses for not blogging as often as usual: I've been taking art classes! This clay sculpture is one of my first projects. It's a dried seedpod of the sacred lotus.

The students had to choose a three-dimensional object and mimic it in a clay sculpture, using a slab of clay of about 3 kg (6.7 lb) in weight. The sculpture must then be painted, to look as though it was made of another material. I tried to paint it marble, but didn't seem to succeed :(

The final assignment was to create a similar sculpture using a different material. I've chosen styrofoam for this one.

I'm impressed, Inna! The seedpod looks real - so well done - and the styrofoam model was a great idea too.

This is a very beautiful work, as all your creations. I made my first steps in quilling with your help this year. Thank you for your inspirational work and best wishes for the festive season!

Well, it's hard to explain. I think you should take some sculpture classes to start with, just like I did before creating this.

I've already given it away. It was too heavy to ship anyway.
