Drawing inspiration from a respect for primitive or tribal art, and the use of symbolism, has led Wendy to create this series of clay figures called ‘Bodies of Healing’. Each unique piece has been hand formed using the pinch technique, then surface burnished with a silverspoon prior to being bisque and smoke fired. Organic and natural materials are applied to the surface at various stages of this intimate process to embellish with mark and colour. A finish is applied at the end
to seal and enhance the look and feel of the object.
Bodies of Healing invoke a healing spirit, one that can be personally identified with.
Each measures approximately 10" high.
Handformed in Prince Edward County.
