I have been making pieces along this vein for a while now. To me it is the most similar technique as collage-ing, but using clay. In my studio it isn’t uncommon to see that I have made a random leg, a colorful torso, or a hairy arm. Eventually I will assemble them to make an ‘entire’ piece. I like working this way because it is playful and unpredictable–there is not set intention when I begin.
