Beeswax and bone sculpture. 2016.
Jinn Tantric (Lust Demon)
Beeswax and bone sculpture 2016.
Catching up with blogging this one, the piece has already sold.
The new website for my art and creative writing classes is now up.
I'm busy uploading photographs of the artwork produced in the Term II art classes, by young participants from Cygnet, the Huon Valley, and the Channel regions of Southern Tasmania.
Term III is set to commence next week. For further enquiries see contact details on the website.
Thank you yet again to Susan, Cobweb Designs Gallery and the lovely people who purchased my Masked Belle, Pony Play Fairy, Fallen Fairy, and Raven Hexen.
My Beeman paid me a visit yesterday with a new batch of perfect leatherwood wax, so I'll be filling the spaces in the gallery soon with new work.
More thanks. Once again to Cobweb Designs, and to the local gentleman who purchased a Fallen Fairy, and my little scorpion tailed Jinn.
Also a shout out to locals--I'm suffering from an acute bone shortage at the moment. I'm looking for the usual small animal bones, and also any bird skulls, wings or avian bones/remains. If you know me, contact me, if not, all bones gratefully accepted if you just drop them off at Cobweb Designs, Cygnet.
Thank you once again to all the people who have purchased my art recently. A Hexen, Jinn Demon (Tantric) and the Queen of the Djinn: Lilith, on her throne, have all left Cobwebs Designs bound for new homes. :)
Had a surreal trip into town with newest sculpture, Fallen Angel, Demeter. I decided to take her in three pieces, and assemble her outside Cobweb Designs Gallery.
I'll be working on her this Cygnet Sculpture Trail/Easter weekend.( http://www.handmadeincygnet.com/)
So if you are in town, and want to smell some real leatherwood beeswax, and see me sculpting with the bees, drop past.
Art is an uncomfortable obssession. So it turns out this one didn't like the horns, and now tells me she's not a jinn, but a fallen angel, and actually Demeter. She's big, but not as big as Venus, and will have vines trailing over her. I'm putting on her legs, working out the balance of weight, and all the difficult stuff. Aiming to get her installed outside Cobweb Designs by the Sculpture Trail/Easter weekend. Endless polishing of the wax by scraping, bloody hours of it. I'm like the potato-mountain building dude in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, totally, ridiculously obssessed. And I won't be able to rest until she's installed. Then I'll go back to making the little ones again, for a while...
