Sculptures and Sketches by Lauren Scales

Welcome to my art blog. Here I will be posting my sculptures, sketches, studies, and more. I hope you enjoy my work.
Also feel free to check out my personal blog, ceramichands.tumblr.com

Some sculptures I’m making for my school’s (NHIA) first anagama firing. During the summer, NHIA built an anagama and over the Halloween weekend they are firing and I’m super excited. 

These two both have pinecone texture on them that I hope will look really cool with all of the wood ash.(I still have a little bit of refining to do before they are high fired.) I have a third piece thats almost done for the same firing. I’ll post that one in a day or two.

Sneak Peak!! My pieces have been fired but I’m going to get them professionally photographed this week, so I thought it would be a bit redundant if I posted them all again and again. So here are some views of the pieces, but not showing the whole thing, so you guys can get a taste of the new additions to my portfolio. 

When I upload the nice photos they’ll all be individually posted with titles, medium, ect. I’m super happy with them so far. So much epoxy to assemble the little pieces. So close to being done!! UGH!

A commissioned piece I’m working on for my mother. Its for my neighbor’s daughter’s  4th birthday. My mom and her share the same birthday, so she wanted to give her something special. Its a fairy princess based off of her when she did a photo shoot dressed up in a similar costume. I took some artistic liberties and added a bit more. I hope she likes it!

A Raku work in progress I’m pretty excited about. I’ve never done raku before so It will be interesting to see how she looks when she’s done. And sorry the pics aren’t that great. My phone had like 3% battery left, but the arts center I go to has the best light, so when she’s done I’ll get a much better photo of her.
