Clay Mammoth Figure
This clay figure was made in 2018, using hand processed natural clay, and fired in an open fire or clamp kiln. It was inspired by various stone age artefacts, but is not a replica of a specific object. Small inclusions in the clay, including stones and vegetable matter, are visible in the 3D model, as are tool marks that suggest how the decoration was added. The figure is approximately 6 cm long.
The 3D model was created in 2021 in the University of Exeter Digital Humanities Lab. Photographs of the object were taken with a 5D Canon camera and 100mm macro lens, using a ‘half focus stacking method’, where multiple photos were taken from the same angle but with slightly different camera positions to create sufficient depth of field to create the model. The model was put together using Agisoft Metashape.
The figure and 3D model were both created by Julia Hopkin.
