The days are so beautiful and a lack of sleep this week combined with a new workout routine combined with some pretty intense effort in the weeks prior– combine to make the desire element of work, non-existent. So I sat on my porch, in the pleasant spring eve, with a bag of clay and crafted […]

Finalized the quick work. With memorial day coming won’t be starting a new work until next Thursday, but will get rolling as early as tomorrow. Works in the work? Thinking of a deep seated figure and then should do a walking figure. I also wish to make a face mold so that I can do […]

One of the two was completed on Saturday. I realized afterwards that I had not been completely true to my model which is to make these as texture studies more than completed works.

One more hour. At this rate I think I need about four more hours. It’s always the question  as to when you’ll get those cycles. I think I can get two in tomorrow morning, and another two Sunday. I should be able to roll a few more slabs out on Sunday and begin crafting my […]

Alright, I would like to be done tomorrow, but that’s probably not going to happen. Been working on other things in the house so this has not gotten all my attention over the past 6 days, however, I’ve made HUGE progress and am very pleased with this expressive process.

Just going at it, and it’s great! I’m developing by attaching wet on web letting it cure for about 24 hours then going at it again.Proportions are roughly considered, but the gesture and the feeling is more important than the perfectly considered development. Hoping to finish by Thursday at least this figure, but will probably […]

And so it begins, 45 days of expressive works. This is about 1.2 hours in the studio this morning developing expressive torsos. I’m going to add legs, heads and shoulders, but the goal is to just try things out. I want for the leg positions to be something that will help me break free. the […]
