Celtic Lace day 4, complete plaster model, soon to be rubber molded and by midweek a new piece will be added to the line.
Day by day progress.
First cast of Celtic Fantasy finished with gold over Antique Copper over Sequin Black and Christmas Green.
I can't begin to say how much I enjoyed working on this. I'll just say it was to the extent I just want to find more Celtic Animals to play with! The following six shots were taken over the course of four days.
And it's an ambitious one...enough to make me nervous. Named Altered Meditation.
End of day 1.
Finished model 1/24
First cast 1/27; finish AC 11 9 3+19
Always in search of something detailed, something intricate I happened upon this, the Thread of Life. One thing I've been conscious of is the lack of much empty space which I find to be desirable when it feels "balanced" by the areas of intricacy. This is really (despite its being circular) a six "sided" figure, that is its symmetry is based on six identical patterns surrounding the same central pattern. So there are six naturally occurring "spaces" around the circumference of the central figure. My point is I am conscious that these space areas need to be accentuated, as well as any other space areas I can make by minimizing the thread and enlarging the space between the thread.
Here is the initial drawing on plaster begun on 1-6-10. It may be completed today.
