Duluth Public Art Sculpture Progress

That's me working on the female deputy boots and legs. Because the core of the piece is mostly foam we were able to lift it up on saw horses. It's a little tough to be crawling around on the floor for this work. To the right is my heat lamp warming up the plasteline clay to make it easier to work.

Working on ears for the female figure. When I see a photo like this I really get an idea of how big these are.
Next I will start on clothing the body, from the feet up.

DPA Project

Making progress on the faces. Thanks to my friends John and Judie for allowing me to photograph them for modeling. Tomorrow I'll be working on the figures from the bottom up. When I am nearly finished I'll go back to the faces to" fine tune" them.

Duluth Public Art Project

After a week visiting Washington DC and the WW 2 Memorial with my dad it's nice to be back at work. We visited the Capitol building and the Hall of Sculptures and the Korean War Memorial. All gave me inspiration for these big figures.
