I cast my second piece today, which always makes me feel productive. This time around the form was very flat compared to the first piece I cast, so it was a breeze to work on. Even though I’m working consistently on the project, I still feel shaky about where I’m going. I think due to the complications with the technical process of sculpture, and how time consuming it can be, it’s going to be a long while before I figure out entirely how to proceed. I think the next step is to make a silicone rubber mold so that I can start experimenting with different kinds of materials.
The other task I took care of today is I took apart the large clay head that I had been using so that I could transition to a relief format for the next few pieces.
