Skills; I have started handbuilding larger scale work of my small extrusions- this way I can follow my need to create a journey of sculpture through a space, viewers can see the shapes, forms, texture and colour from the ground up. I am questioning the kiln size and fitting – bookings and how many bisque firings for all the work together – then the question of how to spray vitreous slips onto them.
Context; Betty Woodman
Anthony Caro – Katie Haywood sculpture and colour, frames/forms that the viewer needs to walk around and look at to recognise all the different angles it encounters
Ideas; Journey of sculpture – exploring the features of form, shape, colour
importance of work to have a presence in such a big environment full of rich details and work around – how to make it stand out? scale – it answers the question of taking someone on a journey, moving around a space, vibrancy excitement and colour applied on large abstract objects.

should speak to people in studio more often and people outside of studio to understand how my work comes across to people – get idea of how to present my work successfully
