Hi Heidi! Thanks. I really appreciate your comment.
Cannot help with your problem with coils but would like to say your work is amazing! Your first picture reminded me of an Arum Lily - they grow wild close to my house.

Thank you for sharing. Sorry I took so long to thank you. Been real busy. I agree with the other posts. Your work is beautiful, like nature, a fungas or a coral from the sea. must take a lot of time to construct a piece. I don't do a lot of coil work so I can't be much help. sometime I will take a piece that I have been working on and when I am done I will put it in a plastic bag and let it set a day or so , so all the clay can equalize in moisture content. Then I'll take it out of the bag for a few hours and then seal it back up and then do it again the next day. I repeat this process until it is dry I think this helps it to shrink evenly and thinner pieces don't crack and separate from the thicker pieces. Also when you are working on a piece that takes more time, the early parts of it are getting dryer than the part you are working on. I do not know if that would apply to what you are doing or not. Just a thought. ain't clay fun Kabe
you are absolutely right about drying the piece gradually and also in my case the part worked on earlier dries up but the gives my piece the strenght to bear the latter part...so it is fine.

Madhavi ............ I primarily do sculpture work but also do exposed coil pieces. I will use coils in several different ways depending on what I would like to accomplish. Sometimes I will incorporate coils into the sculpture. Your posted work is very interesting. I would like to see more. Thanks for sharing.
