“My canine creations are an exploration of the universal nature of dogs as expressed through body language. Each sculpture is handbuilt and carved from Earthenware or Terra Cotta Clay. Each has its own personality and is one of a kind. From start to finish it takes me four to six weeks to create a sculpture. I use black earthenware, white earthenware, and terra cotta clay. I mix scraps of the different clays together to expand my color pallet. The blended clay bodies are always a surprise. Splashes of color, marbling, or a solid color. Sometimes I use an iron oxide wash to give a sculpture a little more color.” – Lori Rembetski
