Why did I choose porcelain as my medium of choice to work in? Especially since it requires a mold for me to create after sculpting the doll?
Porcelain has a translucency to it that gives the piece an inner glow. I guess for me, porcelain comes to life in my hands.
Though I did not know how to appreciate this about porcelain until my mother mentioned wanting to start up her doll collection again.
So, with the fussing of trying to sculpt in a style that I can get the piece out of a mold without catching, and then making sure it doesn't crack in the kiln-firing process, and then having to paint it and re-fire again in the kiln for the paint to adhere - why use it?
