Sandyartist, low fire clay is kiln fired at about 1800 deg F, high fire is around 2300 deg. F. This one has no patina, just a sealer on the fired clay.

This is lovely. The clay looks almost flesh colored... is that correct? Your work has warmth and humanity. Do you have a web site?

Frank..nice piece! Makes me want to work in clay again! Actually, have been messing with it recently..it is a whole different ballgame from 2D...however i do not have a kiln and am looking for a clay that is oven fired..polymer is all I have found. Thanks for posting this..it is truly well-done and I think it was a good decision to leave the patina off..elegant!

Really beautiful Frank... and I agree with leaving off patina too, this looks so natural. How about that web site...do you have one?

The color of this image is slightly darker than the sculpture. It is more of a cream color. I have a web site in the artistnation/art-agent site. Just search for sculpture in either place, my last name is Moran. Thanks for the encouraging comments.

Frank, "hi", and welcome to Wetcanvas. It IS nice to see 3-dimensional work being posted here, and you have a beautiful portrait.
I thought, because I could draw fairly well, I would be able to do 3-dimensional work rather easily. Well...guess what..I learned other-wise!! Quite different working from all sides. Very nice work Frank, thanks for showing this piece to all of us!! MichaelRH
