My latest sculpt is titled "1800's Robot Just Before He Crashed His Scooter" Created out of Super Sculpy II, Styreen plastic, Magic Sculpt and armature wire. It was a piece specifically made for my friend and collector Alex Cohn. It wasn't going to balance correctly with out a base, I usually like to make most of my character sculpts freestanding.I made the base out of walnut, routed a nice bevel in the side and gave it a tongue oil finish.
I ran a shaft all the through to support the robot.
The finished piece.
I wanted there to be some exposed machinery, I have a box of clock and watch parts. In the future I have more large scale sculpts that I'm working on. My December show at Gallery 1988 will have one of these new large scale sculpt ideas. More info soon.
