vulture sculpt

I’m working on a few sculpts at once…two wall hangings, one of which is a vulture (surprised?) and this new little vulture I just finished and is now drying. Started out like an ordinary vulture and then I sat back, quit thinking and started poking, twisting, pushing and digging. So here’s the poor little guy, bowing his thanks (probably that I finally stopped the torture).

first day

Today was the first day of my new “Home & Garden” sculpture class. I started a BIG rabbit for my first piece and it should be done and set to dry next week.
but but but
I don’t know what I’m going to do for the next piece. It’s a 12 wk course, so I hope to be fabulously productive.

any suggestions? more rabbits? gargoyles? vultures? birdbath? cute little kitties…er…nah.

rabbit & child

I don’t know how it happened, but I started sculpting a new hare yesterday and today, a baby rabbit showed up in the middle of it. hmmm.

This one pretty much dictated itself. Started out dreaming that I was to make a solid, slightly cone shaped cylinder and then push it all into shape. Which is what I did when I woke up. Then today, it pretty much finished itself by adding the baby.

Here are a few pictures of it in process…as usual, click through for more pictures on flickr.

an eary mishap

so, was on my way to fire the last batch of hares i made when this tragic accident occurred. my newest rabbit lost his ear in transit and had to undergo emergency ear surgery! looks like a wounded soldier in the war between the states, no?

he even looks in pain.
poor wabbit.

undone hares

This year, I’m concentrating on studies of hares–jackrabbits actually. Here are 3 clay studies I’m working on at the moment—all in various stages of undoneness.
