Glancing, bonded sand and oxides, 16"x12"x1 1/2"

#75, Momentum, relief

Momentum, bonded sand and oxides, 12"x10"x1 1/4"

#74, Passion, relief

Passion, bonded sand and oxides, 18"x14"x1 1/4"

I created this relief over a 3 day period using oil based clay. I first thought of the title when I was struggling with sculpting the hair and head. Initially the head looked like flames more than a head and hair and it took me a while to work this out. Since that point I haven't been able to think of any other title other than Passion. My model on this one is from Fort Collins and is an incredibly talented dancer.

#73, stainless steel Ganesh

Ganesh, stainless steel 60" height x 30"wide

This was recently installed in Colorado at a private residence. Although I don't normally do abstract or stainless steel, it was a fun project.

#71, Danza da Sola, relief

Danza da Sola, bonded sand and oxides, 17"x13"x1 1/2"

Today I worked on casting this relief I made last summer. Although the model is American I decided to call it Danza da Sola which is dance alone in Italian. Not only does the woman look Italian, but the casting itself feels Italian.
