Claymodel Nonna

What better way to get a good sense of size and shape by making a clay model of Nonna and the dog. We will make two models of Nonna. Here you see the overall model. Perfect to test Nonna’s shape and size but with less detail in e.g. het face. We are busy making a second clay model of only her head, so we can really create every wrinkle and characteristic of her face.

Study of Nonna

Nonna is an older Italian grandmother, but what should she look like? How does her size and shape relate to that of the dog? Helen van Vliet made some studies of Nonna’s appearance.
