Venus

I haven't posted here in quite awhile.
Here is another piece I just recently brought to the foundry for molding and casting. This will be a limited edition bronze . Edition size of 25. Right now she stands 22" to the top of her hair. I will be mounting the finished bronze to a 2 or 3 tiered circular marble base probably with a swivel bottom. The over all finished height will be around 26" tall.
This is sculpted in J-mac classic clay.
Just thought I'd share.

Re: Venus

Thats stunning.
How is the hair supported? I see a wire at the back, is it branched and does it go to the tips if the hair?

Re: Venus

Thank you mantrid, Yes there is wire armature though out her hair down the the tips. This clay is too soft to hold it's shape in thin areas without support.

Re: Venus

Wow another great piece Mark, I still remember your “Eel Walker” and it’s still one of my all round favourite sculptures.

Re: Venus

Thanks so much I really appreciate your very kind comments.

Dries, I'm glad to hear you are so fond of my Eel Walker sculpture.
I just shipped out #7 of 20 to a collector in South Carolina. He had ordered a marble base for it that really makes the sculpture pop!
Here is a photo of it on the base.

Re: Venus

You're the boss, Mark. I am a little pink in the cheeks because your legs are similar to a WIP I was about to post today. Of course, I am not anywhere near your skill (yet).

It’s even better looking in bronze! I would not mind getting one for myself and I like the patina finish on the eel stunning. Overall just stunning.

Agree, the Eel Walker piece still sticks in my mind -- a real feat of sculptural modeling and vision.

Re: Venus

The legs are a little heavy for my likes, great effort in any case.
