This is latest piece, a warrior with cuirass and helmet, leaning on his spear.. The original has a snake climbing the spear, symbolising the soul of the dead. Its a Roman design from 1st century BC, imitating the Greek classical style of the 5th century BC.

My latest sculpture:

This is my version of one of the metopes from the Parthenon – perhaps I’ll do a series of them!?

This Night

I am so pleased with this piece… The perspective worked as I wanted it to.  The skin was smooth… She flowed!  I just can’t think of a name for the piece.  I’m thinking of something like, “preparing for the night”,  but i’m not sure… Ha,  just while writing this it came to me, i’m calling it just, ‘this night’, after a track by Black Lab.  The track goes, “Take this night, and wrap it around me like a sheet”.

All done, after around 30 hours of chiselling and filing on my first ever stone piece. I reduced the weight of my lump of stone by around half and probably removed a kilo of stone dust from my hair and clothes.  So, from start…

I’ll post better pictures when I get him home, as this weekend he will be on display in Winterthur town centre as part of the KunstSchule Winterthur exhibition.

I loved every minute of the process and can’t wait to start another piece, which I have already decided what I’d like to do (in marble).
