another sculpture starts

Lorraine Clewlow 11 years ago

I have spent weeks on my first sculpture, building it up and sanding/rasping/chiseling its surface and now that it is taking shape I have started a second. 

The second form was more flimsy than the first so I anticipated problems with weight of plaster on such a fragile framework. 

 

I used herculite and some cheesecloth my gran gave me years ago - it finally found its home! I built the piece up slowly and carefully and it took the weight.

 

I'm now shaping the piece better, filling and covering the inside and texturing the outside.

Am thoroughly enjoying the whole process of building work in this way.
