The Big Rush

Here is the latest sculpture. She was very challenging to make due to her scale.  This is probably the maximum scale that can be handled with the help of a wire armature.  She was standing at 24 inches before I bent the armature, now the piece is 21″ with base. It is made of papier mache.  I really loved working on the face and hands, the larger scale allowed for more detail as before. I would like to be able to sculpt expressive hands, so the size has to go up, up, up.

    I agree, she is beautiful, humorous, elegant, surprising, thought-provoking, and a lot more. Everything one can wish of a piece of art.
