Nearing completion, total effort two hours for both forms. Will use my porcelain slip cast heads for top and some quick tube legs for the bottom. Goal is to experiment with painting the surface.

Worked up these two within about 1 hour this morning. I still need to cover the forms and add legs and necks, but I’d like to run out a few more of these as glaze / texture tests. I’m planning on starting a new bust form in the next couple of days and I also […]

Wanted to try out this posture to see where it would take me. One week so far, probably about 3 more days and I can start my last work. I think the last work before I begin and installation piece, will be another standing figure. Perhaps a small one to see what’s the smallest my […]

I have had my first real success with a plaster mold and slip casting. I’m testing the limits of this two part mold by crafting as many of these heads as the mold will allow. Curious as to the breaking point? The heads are interesting, but next I’m going to try out a 4 part […]

two sessions. One session that was about 1 hour long, the other 30 minutes to clean up after it had dried overnight. One thing i really like about this photo taken on my graphite work bench, is this really interesting pattern. It’s making me think that I should do some wall hangings that involve this […]

1.5 hour sprint yielded this, which promptly collapsed under it’s own weight. I ended up salvaging the top portion which is still interesting and worthwhile for glaze explorations. I’m continuing to run these one sessions sprints in the hope of developing a body of work that can be used as maquettes or models for future […]

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. I wish to try figuratives out that represent future efforts, but to not refine them so completely that they become sacred. So […]
