What a "Relief"!

I'm getting set up to create a series of relief sculptures!

I will be using a substantial H style easel, one that can be configured to work either up-right or flat, and any angle in between. I will start by sizing and fashioning the underlying armatures that are required. I have purchased a couple of wood panels, one 30" by 24" (landscape), and one 24" by 18 "(portrait), to which I will staple aluminum mesh overlays. These relief armatures will hold the clay in place as I work.

I already have a number of relief concepts in my head that I want to pursue. I find it stimulating to work on two or three pieces at a time
