I've been playing with clay... This is a little something I came up with. No wire support and no tools, made the result a little poor, but at least I enjoyed it! I am thinking about adding some drawing/painting... What do you think?

I think it's really pretty just as it is, a nice form doesn't need drawing or painting - but if you are just having fun and enjoying it, go for it. :)

yep! agree with Heather, you make me want to play too ;D

I really like this Efi! From the pics the finish looks just as good as if you had used wire and tools. If it were me I would attack it like a art toy and maybe do a fluid design depicting the sea/waves starting at the bottom climbing upwards, but not getting all of the way. I'd just use black pen I think and possibly a splash of blue. That's just me though. I'm sure you have a nice idea for it. I say jump in and get busy on it even if you have something more minimalist in mind. You can always re-spray it. Good luck and have fun! :)

I don't think the output is poor at all. Its fluid and beautiful. Like calvin it makes me want to get the modelling clay out!
Wayne Edson Bryan commented on January 10, 2012 6:17pm
Looks perfect as is to me.
Olivia Joy StClaire commented on January 10, 2012 6:25pm
I think it looks great! How fun! You make me want to try something new!
Lena commented on January 10, 2012 6:27pm
Whoa- this amazing! Love it :)
Deepti Munshaw commented on January 10, 2012 7:19pm
So beautiful & inspiring, Efi! Great work.... beautiful as is, but you can use it as a blank canvas too! :)
Jacqueline Maldonado commented on January 10, 2012 7:37pm
What an exquisite form! I agree with Heather that it is so beautiful just as it is. I'm sure that if you painted it, the end result would be beautiful as well. But maybe you should just make a second one? I just love this as is!

I think it's gorgeous, Efi...so graceful :)
Geoffrey Agrons commented on January 10, 2012 7:55pm
Graceful and muscular at the same time. Sleek, like a Brancusi.
Catherine Holcombe commented on January 10, 2012 11:22pm
So graceful and lovely in BW

I think it's great as it is... maybe just a coat of the richest Ives Klein blue?
Terry Fan commented on January 11, 2012 2:52am
I think it looks awesome as is! Wonderful work Efi.

I like the simplicity of it .. the curves, smoothness, grace. I wouldn't do anything else to it.... but let your heART ♥ led the way.....
Óscar S. Cesteros commented on January 11, 2012 8:41am
It is great! white is cute, black? I don't know, this form has different possibilities!!
Mat Miller commented on January 11, 2012 8:55am
Of course it has different possibilities, that's just one of the things I might have done with it.

I meant beautiful :)

You guys are the sweetest! Thanks all, for your wonderful and helpful comments! When the idea first came to me, I had visualized this as total white with a white glossy finish (liquid glass or something that could resemble porcelain). I must admit that the most important thing to me, when creating or seeing a piece, is balance and often simplicity. Heather has my point... The thing is, I feel itchy, about totally messing with it, but wouldn't like to "ruin" it either! Mat, "respraying it", you actually gave me an undo, for sure! lol!
I loved your ideas and I would make a mould out of this, so I could play with dozens of different styles! (Maybe that's what I should do, only I am too lazy)
I think, I'll sleep on it... I'll keep you posted!
Thanks again for your time and great comments! :D
Heather Goodwind commented on January 11, 2012 12:22pm
make a mold, do 10 plaster casts and play with them - not the original. :)
angela deal meanix commented on January 11, 2012 12:25pm
it's awesome! it's so smooth I am impressed and I love that it's just a the tail ... I can imagine the rest :) I love it simplistic like this in white. Very natural and reminds of the texture of a sand dollar.
Efi Tolia commented on January 11, 2012 12:25pm
I love the way you stick, to what you believe! lol! xo
Gréta Thórsdóttir commented on January 11, 2012 12:35pm
beautiful!
Efi Tolia commented on January 11, 2012 12:39pm
Angela, I am glad you like it! Actually, finishing this with sandpaper was so much fun! White powder was all over the place, including me! I had missed getting dirty hands! :)
Efi Tolia commented on January 11, 2012 12:40pm
Hi, Gréta! Thanks! :)
Anai Greog commented on January 11, 2012 12:41pm
Beautiful lines, you should play more often.
Efi Tolia commented on January 11, 2012 12:47pm
I wish, I could, Anai! Thank you, so much! :)
