Little Mushroom Man 7, 2023
5 x 3 x 3 in
I sculpt these little mushroom men out of wet clay, they are hollow. I pinch pieces of clay to form them. I aim to capture the different expressions we can find in the human face. They are full of wonder. I use underglazes to add color and also a black wash to bring out the details. Lastley they are coated with a sealer to give a nice shine.

Sam Clark is a ceramic artist, primarily a sculptor, and he grew up in Louisville, MS.  He loves to create with his hand and feel wet clay squishing through his fingers. For over 20 years he has participated in juried craft shows and won many awards along the way.  Most recently, Sam was awarded the Legacy Award at this years Peter Anderson Show in Ocean Springs, MS, a show recognizing excellence in the ceramic arts. 

"With the art I create, my goal is to connect to this idea. As children, we see worlds of wonder and adventure around every turn, but as we grow old we often lose our way. Places of joy and refreshment become difficult to find. I do my best to help make a road back to these sacred places the soul longs for."
