Line drawing of a rabbit; his long ears listen alertly while he sits confidently among the stems of tumbleweed, surroundings which are invisible in this simple outline describing his large eyes, the curve of his back, his soft nose. The strong black lines are made with a charcoal pencil, one of my favourite mediums. Sarah Myers.

Here is a snapshot of my large sculpture "Spring", made from terracotta, in front of an elaborate Indian screen. Sunlight pours through the doors behind the painted wood lattice-work. A glimpse of finished art now living in our day-to-day existence.

A sketch for today in charcoal and white conté on tan paper. Created just now. The gentle, pensive tilt of her head is accentuated by the dangling pearl earring. (Sarah Myers)

Head, looking upward – another picture in very dim light, but I could not resist posting this record of my work, taken just as I was finishing it. I spent about one-and-a-half days' effort on it and signed my name on the side this morning, completing it. Terracotta clay; what you see here is the raw material - after the sculpture has been fired in the kiln it will turn a lively orange-red.

This tiny sculpture is the size of an orchid flower – barely longer than a finger. It's both a dancing lady and a bloom, and was inspired by my good friend +Mrinalini Mazumder's glorious photos of orchids ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/ck6EZ ) and her lovely descriptions, which often point out how much these flowers resemble small dancing figures. The lady is still in raw clay, waiting to be fired in the kiln – afterward, she will be a bright terracotta red.

Detail of a sculpture, still in fresh clay; a woman with a cornucopia overflowing with fruit and grain. She might represent “abundance” or “bounty”; she will be a vivid, warm red terracotta after firing the kiln.

A sixteenth-century warrior in profile. The drawing is black charcoal and white conte on a brown-tinted paper. The portrait - and the helmet - are imaginary, and I was pleased to be able to create convincing light and shadow by estimate. Influenced by Renaissance and Mannerist sketches.

An ibex in terracotta - I created this sculpture for my sister. The spring of his proud horns is an unusual shape for clay - though the material can take almost any shape, it cannot hold all, and the arc of the horns, (though carefully prepared) was asking much. The shapes held both through drying and firing in the kiln. This red earthenware, or terracotta, that proved itself so well was an experimental formula imagined by my sister +Amy Myers. It has since been superseded for us by her later clays, but I still think it was a good material for this noble and alert buck, staring upward intently as he begins to rise...

A minimal drawing in black charcoal. A poised woman in a long dress is described by a few dark lines.

My most recent sculpture, still in raw clay - a seated lady holding a small bird.
