Sculpture process

After two weeks since the beginning of the "Four Chair or Conversation Piece" project the building part is complete. The components for all the chairs are ready and drying so that they can be bisqued later this week. Bellow some images of the process: 

A sketch of the piece. It will be located in the green area between the studios and the house here at Guldagergaard.



I used two clays: a porcelain body and a dark stoneware. Coarse grog and molochite had to be added to the porcelain to make it suitable for standing outside. I used the dark clay to make the backs an the details in the bottom part.


I built the chairs in parts to make it less stressful for the clay. All the components have been cut and measured to fit each other after firing.



The back of the chairs in dark clay and inspired on the architecture of Danish churches.

  2. Resulta interesante las asociaciones que surgen de las diferentes posiciones de las sillas, ahora si las sillas son a escala natural estamos hablando de obra publica lo cual es un logro.

  3. Las sillas son a escala natural Daniel. La posición de las mismas tiene que ver con encuentros y posibilidades, lo que sucede en un centro como Guldagergaard donde los artistas se encuentran y comparen no sólo el trabajo sino la vida diaria. Ha representado un gran reto y no lo podría lograr sin la ayuda importantísima de Craig Hartenberger.
