The initial objective of my thesis work was to create clay compositions with the slab technique which had both flat and rounded surfaces. A unique figure was then to be brought up from those surfaces using low relief modeling and whatever distortion or exaggeration was demanded by the particular surface. I felt a need to create compositions that would present more than one face to the viewer. A continuing flow of visual movement around the composition was intended to be created in the form itself, through the figures or both. Frequently softly rippled edges helped this movement as well as relating naturally to the subtle curves of the figures.
