Nice detail on the toes and hair, as well as the turn of the shoulders.  Great emotion!

What do you use to finish your pieces.  Looks like a wash of some type.  It gives a nice subtle colour.

Thank you very much

I use a burnt umber acrylic wash and lightly spray over with a white primer to get the shading, hopefully giving some depth

Of course, ceramic is different, but I've been working with shoe polish.  Black isn't very good, since it tends to turn sort of purple, but brown does a nice job of giving a little luster, and really bringing out the texture.  I've found though that you can't fire the clay at too high a temperature, since you actually want it a little porous, so that it absorbs and holds on to the wax a little, so you can get a luster.

You've also got some really interesting photographing techniques.  I'm still zeroing in on that.  I've finally gotten pretty good at using a light-box to get a more accurate photo, but you take it another step and get a lot more drama out of the photograph itself.]

Great work!

Thank you 

I found the photography a real challenge, spent some time trying different techniques, I use 2 lamps one a natural light lamp have been trying to use the shadows to create a more interesting image

Your sculptures are beautiful and great photography

Thanks!

I'll have to play around more with the photography... maybe take some tips from my brother who is really good at that kind of thing.
