I just got word that my small piece, “Hare” was accepted in the Fall 2009 Member’s Juried Exhibition at the Wayne Art Center.
I’m rather surprised since it’s really a small little thing, barely 6-7 inches high. I do think she’s rather cute though.
So, I guess I’ll be heading on over the the Wayne Art Center on Sunday (3-5pm) to see the company she’s keeping.
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.
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.
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.
and a couple close-ups just for fun.
