An unexpected response.

I like to draw with the clay, but it is a bit frustrating when it dries out slowly so I made these pieces yesterday and left them to dry overnight so that I could use them today, to explore ridges and seams. I then spent the evening drawing seeds and my drawings took me in a completely different direction to where I had expected and now these clay tests are no longer the right shape!  Its a good job you can re-use clay!

A humble nasturtium seed. It separates to make the most pleasing shape, with a beautiful delicate split whose quality I am excited to try to replicate.fullsizerenderh
