Sculpture Developement

I am enjoying continuing with my sculpture I started at the workshop in Halifax. It is something that is completely new to me so is harder for me to take completely control of.
This is where I have got so far.
I am really Enjoying how slow it is 🙂

Sculpture Workshop No.2

We went all the way to Halifax for my second sculpture workshop. It was at the art centre in the beautiful place below, The Piece Hall.This is my first piece of casting. I had to weave something and include it in the sculpture, this was because of the history of the place we were working in.I have ticked both of my pieces below, which I bought home to work on further.It was a long way to go, but we called in on the Hepworth Wakefield on the way home, which added to our enjoyment of the weekend. 🙂

Gesso relief No.2

This is my second finished gesso relief, you may remember it from a recent blog although it looked a little different then. I’m looking to experiment a lot more with this technique, but I’m very pleased with how this piece has turned out, now just to varnish it 🙂

Hyacinth Relief

We had friends round the other day and I was bought a lovely bunch of spring flowers which included some beautiful hyacinths. I was inspired to use one for a relief.

When pressing this into the clay I wasn’t sure how it was going to come out.But I went for it anyway, the challenge is the driving force for me.Peeling back the clay is very satisfying. This is how it turned out.It still needs a bit of cleaning up but I’m very pleased! 🙂
