Kathleen Howard SculptorAs a sculptor, I have always had a fascination with the structure and diversity of the human form. Artists can be entranced with the ballet of movement and beholding the lustre of life; so to capture a moment in time, in clay is a wonderment.

There is no doubt, anatomy, whether human or animal, is a challenging subject to observe and create in the soft medium of clay. I always hope that my ability to render the essence of my subject shines through. When I take on a new project, a desire emerges to do the task in hand justice.

Sculpting the human head is an example. I feel that the face expresses a playground of emotions. It’s not enough to be just curious about bone structure and composition. One must look further and feel the life force of the person coming through from within.
