New Horse Head Sculpture

Just finished! This month has been very hectic for me, but successful! I hosted an Open Studio with my art palĀ  Kristen Hoard, and opened my own store on Etsy.

But I also have been working on this new sculpture of a horse head, and tonight I’m putting the finishing touches on him. He is hand sculpted by me out of ceramic clay and recycled copper wire that has aged to a nice green patina. I have glazed him in a color called Root Beer, and added turquoise to the dragonflies that adorn his neck.

This guy will hang on the wall nicely, and measures 23″w by 18″ h. He is the first horse head in what I intend to be a new series of wall sculptures.

My Studio Right Now

This is the second dog sculpture I am creating for my show, “Animal Attraction”, in November at Little Relics Gallery in Sacramento. I love how little terriers run, you know, with all four legs off the ground? They’re really funny, they are just so full of energy! When I started sculpting this guy, all I could think of was “the flight of the bumble bee”. So of course I had to put a bee on him! Note the snail staring jealously up as he flies over! Sometimes I crack myself up…:)
