Joanne Mozdzen is an artist from Poland whose sculptures are true masterpieces. Joanna says that art has been present in her life from a very young age: she has always been fascinated by the multitude of emotions a human face can express, and these expressions have always served as a source of mystery and inspiration for her.
During the demonstration, Joanne shows a step-by-step presentation of how to model a female head as she creates a realistic sculpture out of clay. She places a piece of clay onto the stand and starts shaping the details of a human face. First she draws a few base lines on the surface which will aid her to create the sculpture. Because clay is very easy to shape, clay sculptures can be very fine-detailed and realistic.
The Polish artist slowly shapes the nose, the mouth, the cheekbones, the ears, the eyes and the hair. With the aid of a special tool, she creates the expressive lines of the face. The result of this painstaking work is a very impressive work of art. It is amazing how easily Joanna can make a lump of clay come to life and show emotions.
