goatmouth_620People have been using clay to tell stories since the dawn of history. Lisa Naples tells stories in both her functional pots and ceramic sculpture. In her video, Narrative Animal Sculpture, she concentrates mainly on the latter, sharing all of the secrets to sculpting convincing animal forms in clay.


In this clip, Lisa shows a great technique for an expressive mouth on a goat. So fun! – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
