A lump of clay
Unformed as yet it lies upon the bench
Full of endless possibilities

About The Project

I started by thinking about how clay could be anything you wanted it to be, and wrote the words, I considered drawing a lump of clay with shadows of many different things that it could turn out to be, but then I started to think about people were malleable like clay.

I thought about how our lives were shaped by both our personalities and the experiences we were exposed too, how as a child that shaping was done mostly by others, but as an adult we could choose to take over and become the sculptor ourselves

So I chose to create a very simple image, a young child, the unformed lump of clay yet to be shaped. I scanned in a monochrome photo of my niece, applied the hot wax effect in paint shop pro twice, then added an extra white layer and adjusted the transparency to lighten the image.
