Almost Done!

Yay! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I've been working on this piece for over a month now and I am getting quite anxious to get it finished. What I want to do is get this piece to the foundry before I leave for San Francisco on July 11th. (More on that trip later!) I would like to cast this bird girl in bronze and then fire the original clay piece to completion. I really like how she is turning out, and now all I have to do is finish the little bird at the bottom. I've just roughed in that bird, and he needs to be smoothed out and details added. That shouldn't take me too long, once I get in the studio. That is the real challenge for me right now, as hubby has been very busy with his work and the babysitter is out of town, so it's just me and the kiddo all the time. Maybe tonight if I have some energy, I'll head out to the studio. Let me know what you think about the bird girl!

  5. Lovely artwork~ Makes me miss ceramics, I only dabbled in college. I am in your flying lessons class and so glad to meet you! Not just lovely, amazing work. I will come visit often and a new follower. Theresa

  6. This piece is beautiful and touching in so many ways that I can't even find words which if you knew me you would know how rarely that happens. Something about it makes me want to cry and not big fat tears, but something more soft and gentle, like weeping really. It feels like it comes from a more delicate place more of a cross between sorrow and tenderness.
    Oh sorry ... I'm not getting this out properly, but truly she is just so beautiful.

    Glad to find you through Flying Lessons!
