“Garden Reverie” – Finished clay pics!

Garden Reverie’s work in progress blog posts are here.  (See Garden Reverie’s bronze photos) I’ll continue to add more steps showing her anatomy being refined on into molding, casting in bronze and patina.  

For now, I’m skipping ahead to the finished clay pics because I’m doing a pre-cast promotion (also available at my Napa gallery) for this sculpture.  She will be available in bronze by mid-April.

The initial roughing in of the sculpture is finished.  Now on to refining the anatomy.From a distance her hands look as if they are finished and for a quick sketch type sculpture, they would be.

The gallery that is representing me in Napa (Quent Cordair Fine Art) is sharing this work in progress on their QCFA blog as well. Here’s the next step, that of adding her dress and the general flow of the fabric. It’s amazing what a few directional brush strokes of clay can do with giving the illusion of a dress.

Garden Reverie- 2nd Post

Glad to share the next step for creating my garden lady — figuring out her hairstyle. Sculpting her hair is my favorite part of modeling her (adding clothing is a close second… sculpting the face comes in third although it’s the most difficult).

Kristy’s Blossom pregnancy sculpture now in Bronze!

Hi Friends,

What a happy thing I did….. :-) …. Since I had such a positive response to my fired clay pregnancy sculpture, I decided to make a mold and cast her in bronze so she’d be available as an edition. See a few mold pics and process notes here.  So glad I did because casting was a success and I’m pleased with the results.
