Latest WIP

Here is the first sculpture which I intend to fire and possibly sell. It is about 6 inches high and made from white stoneware clay. I have taken the sculpture as far as poss without reference. So now I will find a similar pose and finish detailing it.The pictures are a bit rubbish as they were taken in low light without a tripod.

Cheers Bob. I'm looking forward to trying the same sort of thing in wood:¬)

Thanks Gail. It's the finishing touches which take the most time. Something to do with the law of diminishing returns.

Hi Sarah. I appreciate your comment. I do want to do larger sculptures. What I'm hoping to do is find a size I am most comfortable with. I think maybe 60cm, (2 feet in old money), would be an ideal size in terms of working and impact of the finished article.
Chris - I've been woefully behind on blog-reading - I'm really enjoying all of your sculptures - and congrats on the new book? Sounds like things are flowing for you at present. Yay!

Lovely lyrical work, Chrispy! I can see that you enjoy this kind of subject matter.

By the way, I notice that you follow a small number of blogs. Why doesn't mine feature among them?

Hi tara and Cathy, thanks for your comments. I've actually changed the pose of the sculpture as I realised it is fairly uncomfortable.

Nothing personal Cathy. I've been meaning to add to my list of Blogs but I have been a bit lazy. The ones up their now were just transferred from my other blog to test if the links were working.

Cathy, sorry I was confused. The blogs shown are the one's following me: 'followers' not 'following'

If you had a list of followers and a follow button I could follow you.

....you follow? :¬)

Thanks for the comment on my blog, Chrispy, and the invitation to mud wrestling was the most appealing one I've had today. Will do the thing with the buttons.
