The sculptors work with very fine, black, highly plastic
clay material. It is as soft as plasticine and supple,
but retains its solid, fantastic plastic qualities .
The sculptor has the difficult task to form this lump
of clay into a hummelfigurine.
Of course, a drawing of Maria Innocentia Hummel always
forms the basis for the clay model. The sculptor has
to pay attention to the harmonic overall picture and
the resemblance with the drawing. The later size of
figurine is now determined.
