Let there be light

Another take on base making. I love lighting my work, especially a piece like this, I think it helps with the emotion.

Bases need feet!

It's probably hard to tell from these shots, but this is just what my bases have been missing, I'll call them feet. I think it helps give them direction and also works with the story, composition, and balance. Don't worry once I sand em, finish em, and tweek em on a bit, you'll love em!

More pages

You would probably think I'm a bit tortured by looking at these two sculptures. But it's because of spending some time these sculptures that I'm not at all crazy in the head.

Just felt like slapping together a page for this sculpture after I photographed it. If your interested in reading a little about it, you can here at my website Disappointment.

Late night scribbles

I've been trying to make time to stop and get back to doing some of my over worked and over thought pen and ink drawings. But it always seems to be about 2 o'clock in the morning when I sit down to do one. By that time my brain is not capable of harnessing the many thoughts and ideas that are usual at hand. So silly scribbles is all I seem to do.


I've never sculpted a relief before and after doing this, I think I can still safely say that. I've always loved reliefs that are more in the round, when the figure tears itself off of the flat plain. After firing and glazing this it will be mounted in a shadow box type frame already constructed.

More of the same

The "Burly Man" and some more maple courtesy of "the old man from the mountain".
