I started with a drawing, thinking it would be a very minimal sketched outline for a bas relief paper clay figure. But … things change! I liked the head I started with, and somehow got my figure into a most awkward angle and position. Then the drapery appeared, and I found myself looking a worker in ancient China. So strange!
Then I started in with the paper clay, but created the Michelin Tire Man only in white… darn it! So while he is drying, I photographed a couple of arrangements.
