Mystery Person revealed: Frederick Douglass

Many people on my Facebook Page guessed correctly. The mystery person is Frederick Douglass. The clay sculpture of Frederick Douglass is nearly finished. The clay will continue to firm up to the leather hard state and I'll make a few minor additional touches as this happens. It will need to dry to a firm state to allow me to cut the sculpture in half and begin the hollowing out process that will allow me to fire it in my kiln. This life-sized piece will take a month to dry enough for firing. Once hollowed, I'll slip and score the edges, reassemble and repair the surface.

This clay is slab and sculpture and tile and sculpture cone 10 water-based clay with a heavy grog.
