We continued our leftover work from last week for the Invisible Cities project, and I managed to make a new plaster "cave" model that can be used to create a clay one:
I have also made a box (candle holder) with a lucky clover pattern in response to my B-List project. I learnt a new skill - to apply slip onto the still-wet clay - can't wait to see the outcome next week!
At the end of the day, we watched a BBC documentary "Art that made us - To Kill a King". We learnt the story about the Tulip Stairs in the Queen’s House, Greenwich, by Inigo Jones; we were then guided by the portrait artist Tai Shan Schierenberg, to study how Van Dyck portraited the Earl of Pembroke’s family in details. It was a brilliant programme that also gathered artist Rita Duffy, photographer Platon, actor Anton Lesser, playwright Aphra Behn, artist Angela Palmer, sculptor Thomas Heatherwick. I was surprised to discover that it is just an empty shell inside of Christopher Wren’s dome of St Paul’s - fascinating!
