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 […]

I’m really enjoying this process. It takes more time than I realize to do small things. The fact that I’m moving forward at a speed where I’ll be finished with these two works in a couple more days, underscores the fact that each session in the studio has me completing parts by degrees. I may […]

A real challenge for me is to be legs. Here is my first foray into the crafting of the complete figure. Developing the figure from head to toe is something I’ve been working towards now for the past year, and I’m finally pressing into the arena. We’ll see how this plays out.

Added the head and completed the neck proportions this morning, finally have my base construct. Next comes the facial features and proportions and details of the face based on an actual portrait photo. I’ve decided to use this photo from Pinterest as the model. It’s interesting to see how triangular her face is. I’ll use […]
