Portrait Bust: Licia

5 Mar

This portrait bust of Licia is done, unless I decide to add ornamentation to the pedestal. It’s made of pottery clay, so I’m debating whether to fire it before making the mold–which entails many hassles– or simply make a mold from the dry clay, which will likely┬árequire cracking up the sculpture. I’m inclined toward the latter.

New Sun & Moon Sculpture

3 Jan

Here’s the final version of the original sculpture, ready for the mold-making process. I’ll make the mold with the greenware before firing it.

Christmas Angel Finished

2 Dec

The clay original of my Christmas Angel broke up during the mold-making process. Plenty of time to restore and salvage it later. The trade-off of a really good working mold is very much worth it. I can crank these out by the dozen now. God help us!
