This was my very first sculpture, I made it in September of 2010 out of plaster, wood, and chicken wire. I only had 4 weeks to build it in between class and a full time job. I originally wanted to make it look like pristine marble, but when my form seemed off to me my only choice was to use a hatchet to get the form I wanted. I took a risk and I think it was for the better. I know there is tons of room for improvement and I really want to begin working with clay so I can cast in bronze as my university has a foundry.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fBaY ... C_0824.jpg
I have some other figurative art at metalmans.net, but I really want to work with clay or stone over steel.
