Builing the Girl, 28th September, 2005
Inside there is a straight iron support wrapped in cloth. It is straight to allow for shrinkage and sagging during the building process, the cloth prevents the clay from clinging to the iron rod.

I usually play around with the clay for a couple of days like this,  making many rough changes, getting a feel for where I want to go with the piece.

I had the ideal of a head with fins at this point, something like the
Mark III Angel.
