Using clay to create figures of people, animals, or dreams

I use earthenware clay to create figures that represent a range of people, or sometimes animals, or sometimes people from my imagination. Occasionally I work with models, but when that is not possible I use photographs. If no images are available, I conjure ideas from my head. Once the clay has been hardened, it is bisque fired; before being finally glazed in a kiln. Sometimes I might use aluminium wire as a support for long narrow pieces of clay, but in this case no kiln work is possible, so the figures are much more delicate. So far my maximum height for one piece has been around 35 centimetres, but I hope eventually to go to twice that size.
