example of the additive method is Clodion’s Satyr and Bacchante, 1775.
It is made of terra cotta. Everyone has created figurines out of clay. As
long as the clay is wet, pieces can be continually added till the final
product is achieved. The bacchante (woman) can be created separately from the
satyr (half-man/half-goat) and then assembled. The cup in her hand and
details of his seat also can be added in as desired. Again, the
sculpture is of a single color yet still has contrasts in value due to the play
of the natural light upon the surfaced, creating areas of brighter white and
shiny reflections and areas of darkness simulating the valleys of the bodies
and shadow cast by one object onto another. Clodion also manipulated textures
to naturalistically distinguish between flesh, human hair, furry goat legs
and the rocky base.
