I have now framed the sculpture I did of Anja, who said this about it
Wow, thank you Darrell Hayward what an Amazing surprise! 😀 i feel flattered, an artist sculptured me☺️!
He said it took him about 50hours to
create the mini-me. I love his art! He sure deserves some likes & a click on his page:
She’s done – finally! My bas-relief of Anja Zeidler (https://anjazeidler.com/) I’m rather pleased with it – I hope she likes it too!
She’s about 6-8 inches in size and less than 10mm thick. Made from polymer clay.
My latest piece. She took far too long to finish for my liking, but I am having trouble with motivation at the moment so I do just a few minutes each night, rather than getting really stuck in. There are artists (and others) who inspire me, and I wish I had their passion (and their skill) to keep going, hour after hour, day after day. Perhaps I should dedicate my sculpture to ‘those with the passion and purpose to keep going’. Perhaps I will publish a list of those people? Perhaps I should just go back to bed!
I really hope that everyone likes my latest sculpture…it’s taken me a lot longer than expected, having cut pieces off and re-sculpted them several times. Have I mentioned how I have difficulty with hands and feet?! Still, I can see an end, so hopefully within a few days, you’ll see it here. Please feel free to comment, so I feel the extra work was worth it.
Seeing as I had not realised this post was stuck on my phone from several days ago, I may as well continue the post…
I am so pleased with the way my latest piece came out… She is great (I think anyway). Photos to come tomorrow I suspect… Please comment.
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.
It’s made from polymer clay and is about nine inches tall.
My latest sculpture:
This is my version of one of the metopes from the Parthenon – perhaps I’ll do a series of them!?
Lapith fighting a centaur. South Metope 31, Parthenon, ca. 447–433 BC.
