Well, aside from the inevitable thousand tiny touch-ups, the face is done. I’m going to make a mold of her before I start trying out the mask options or put her in the kiln. I could easily destroy her with a mask that I decide doesn’t work, and accidents happen in the kiln.
It’s nice to sculpt again. I just realized it’s been at least 8 years! I’ve been doing more painting, drawing and other mediums for installation.
I think sometimes one gets better at things in the time between the actual doing of it. My eye has gotten better and I haven’t forgotten how to use my hands.
On another note I loved working at the Crucible. It’s a wonderful space, and so nice to know I have access to all sorts of great equipment for working with metal, glass, wood, and clay. In other good news, Techshop is opening a branch in SF, so I won’t have far to drive to have access to laser cutters, milling machines, 3D printers and other more high-tech tools when I need them.
