shaping a form

Last week I started on a big form which I am planning to make papier maché objects on eventually. I have never done this, but with the guidance of art teacher Ulf at Sigtuna Folkhögskola, hopefully I will succeed.

Earlier the very same day, I had coffee with a new acquaintance, Sara, who has recently moved to Sigtuna. It turns out she is a mask-maker (among other things) and knows just about everything there is to know about papier maché! She also happened to be very nice :)

This is the the first step: making a clay form. The next step will be to cover it in plaster to make a plaster cast.
