Here are a few pictures of the sculpture that I have been working on as in the previous post. The base is not necessarily the final option as I am not sure where to go with this part at the moment. For the time being it will sit on the current base until I make a final decision.
The process went rather more smoothly than anticipated. It was my intention from the start to use the lathe as a part process for the making of sculptures that are not in the round. I am pleased with the result on a whole but have a few parts I want to build upon and develop.
It was turned through six axis using various work holding methods, cut, carved, finished, coloured with auto motive spray with the addition of a blck pebble found at the beech. The base is simply an un-finished piece of oak sprayed again with automotive spray.
It measure 8 inches in length x 4 inches wide future ones will become larger and will be made from finished oak and other woods as well as other materials.
