Feb 23rd.. Cut and splice- dismantling-white bronze and pink rubber

I’ve reworked the bronze of what i’m going to call the ‘Cley figure’ , he’s going to be half buried on the beach at Cley in Norfolk.. i’ve recoloured him and added a stick on his back..all very important I’m sure you’ll agree..!!

This is how he looked before..

The head was to severe,  I think the new one has a bit of serenity.. I also changed the feet.. not easy.. couple more shots then we’ll move on I think..

More bronzes reaching the finishing line, these are the ‘White figures’, not sure how big this series is going to be..

The front one has  cast lengths of 2×4 timber. The one at the back is called ‘Facing forward ,looking back’.  The plinth is two cast studio buckets. Here is the figure on the stool in wax at sax!

And here it is in the original plaster months ago, before all the mouldmaking. The figure is two separate sculptures cojoined. I liked the vaguely classical set up contrasting the roughly hewn builders materials, two bucket bottoms and timber.. better than a plinth, I hope you’ll agree!

And here’s ‘Looking forward facing back’, in plaster. With original buckets! again at the Sax studio..

Moving on…I transferred a very delicate wax and stick construction from one studio to the other today, a miracle it survived. The exercise provided me with the opportunity to examine the idea that the elements could act as independant sculptures.

One of my wonderful assistants Alice Ewing spent the weekend making this mould for me. A Head..

This head is called ‘Forgotten tune’, he’ll be used in the construction of other figures at Butley, I need a range of heads to work with, and I don’t do ‘life casting’.
