Making Clay doll with Children

It was the first time for me to make clay dolls with children in an orphanage.
they were very energetic and friendly.
Yesterday we made a shape with clay.

JAPAN

昨年作った300体のクレイドール’JAPAN’にお客様がつき無事旅立ちました。黒スーツで身を固めた男女の就活生たちが私には全員同じに見えるので、シリコン型で量産して作った皮肉を込めた作品です。お買い上げいただいたお客様はまさに就活のプロ「ええ人材採用研究所」田邉氏です。この皮肉作品がどのように料理されるのか楽しみです。どうもありがとうございました! http://www.aajinzaisaiyo.jp

二人は最終的には手をつなぐのだが、今の時点で手をつないでしまうと、作りにくくなるため、つなぐ方の手は最後に仕上げることにした。

髪や服装もすべて粘土で レイヤーにして作る。、上から粘土を重ねる前に下になる部分を先に磨いておく。 というわけで サンドペーパーで磨く作業は最後にするのではなく随時やることになる。
(まだどこも磨いていなない状態)

乾燥させると縮んだり、歪んだりしてくるので、 乾かしては調整して粘土を少しつけて、また乾かして・・・・を 繰り返す。

仕上がりは頭の中では予想されているとはいえ、やはり形になってくるとできがりが楽しみだ。

Sea forest 海の森 

There is an island made of garbage in Tokyo bay .and I have joined an event of planting baby trees on this ground . Now this island is still barren but will become the biggest forest in Tokyo in the future.
and I heard the garbage under the ground are non-recyclable.
to make the forest near the ocean sounds interesting and good idea but sad thing is that the garbage will never be part of the earth which is similar to nuclear power.

Herons in a park

f0072976_20405256.jpg

some snowy herons on the electric wire
they are not so small
but they can stand still on such a thin wire like statues
don't they fall from there while sleeping?

粘土の下地  この時点でよーく乾かして骨となる針金やら頭、胴体を完全に固定する。 そういうわけでひたすら乾燥させます。
