May I show you around? To your immediate right is the area where I create new horse sculptures from wire and clay. You’ll see how I use wire as a skeleton, then build up a sculpture from the inside out adding non-hardening clay, often muscle by muscle.
To your left is the ceramic production area where I slip cast and fire ceramic reproductions of my sculptures.
Across the way is Bear’s workbench where he makes molds of original sculptures. He works for outside clients too, so you never know what interesting projects you may find over there!
The big yellow thing in the back corner is a rotational casting machine, used to make resin reproductions of sculptures.
In the far back, next to the yellow roto-caster, is a well ventilated spray booth, where Barry and I take turns; he mixes his mold and resin casting materials there, I airbrush underglazes and glazes on the ceramic pieces.
Beyond the useful tips about sculpting or art making in general which you’ll glean during your visits here, you will witness sculptures' unique personalities develop over time.
When you visit this blog you will be in the know about new projects, just as if you are peering over my shoulder as I work.
Every once in a while we take a fieldtrip; you’ll come along too.
