Back Seat Driver

Back Seat Driver, ceramic and mixed media sculpture by Judy Nelson-Moore

This piece is about that disconcerting or disorienting feeling of driving in a car and having the passenger(s) issue conflicting directions. 

Imbedded in the sculpture during the making is a rather large previously fired fragment of a face as well as a previously fired hand.  The use of paperclay allowed me to imbed these fired pieces and then fire the sculpture again without them cracking out of the piece.  Two metal pieces were added after the firing.

Paperclay Information

Here is a document I use in my paperclay classes and workshops. It contains a summary of some of my paperclay wisdom.
