NaplesHare620As both an animal lover and a clay lover (not to mention a big fan of the lovely Lisa Naples), I really enjoyed Lisa’s 

Narrative Animal Sculpture video.


For today’s clip, I’m sharing a (much-condensed) clip in which Lisa demonstrates sculpting a rabbit’s head – but as she points out, the process can be applied to all mammals with special attention paid to the unique features of each one. – Jennifer Harnetty, editor.




Having trouble watching the video?
