Hi
I'm a retired guy who in previous lives was a full time musician and a clinical psychologist in private practice. I've just begun setting up a workplace for doing some clay sculpting. The art form is very appealing to me and I'm looking forward to developing some basic clay sculpting technique. I discovered pretty quickly that I would have to get some basic tools, a clay softening system, some good books and a well lit place to work. I'm ninety percent there and plan to begin this week working out of the Phillippe Fauraut, Volume 1 Figure Sculpting book.

I joined this forum with the hope of eventually meeting up with a clay sculptor I might study with should I find the hobby to be as enjoyable as I suspect it will be. I have done a fair amount of wood working over the years and enjoy working with my hands. I'm getting up there in age and the ability to create with my hands without doing heavy lifting is appealing to me.

I look forward to seeing what you are all up to on this formum.
Ciao for now,
