“Inspire” is almost done. He still has a few bald spots (still trying to decide the best direction for those strands) and I need to add the inner curve to the top right border, but I am so close. I probably won’t post again until there are glazed versions. Not that there’s much surprised left to him, after so many detailed posts about his creation!
And as many of you who have followed this blog for a while now have already figured out, I am utterly incapable of multi-tasking. It is really difficult for me to put a project down and pick up another. So everything in the studio ground to a halt while I worked on this sculpture.
That meant that I didn’t get my claybody custom photographed and loaded up to the Auction Barn before the holidays. I fear I missed my window, since many people find it hard to bid on items close to Christmas. I think I will hold off on the auction for a little while, but I will try to get her pictures up. She’s too cool to hide away just because I got distracted.
It wasn’t just the studio that has suffered from my obsession. The holiday baking hasn’t been started. My family is beginning to wonder if I plan to feed them, or just show them a few more strands of clay horse hair!
