#79, Serenity, relief

Serenity, 16"x12",shown in clay

For the last couple of months I have been busy with a lot of studio projects which has kept me from doing any of my own sculptures. Last week I decided that I needed to do a bas relief and I created this of one of my models. This is sculpted a little higher than my previous works, the highest areas being 1". I've also kept the background in its original state from the initial block out, hence the rough edges.

#78, Glancing terracotta

Glancing, 15"x11", terracotta

I sculpted this relief a couple of months ago and it is one of my favorite reliefs I've created. This is cast in terracotta clay and I will be having it fired next week. We should see if it will survive the firing, but if it does I might try finishing it with a little wax and oxides.
