Looking Home

This is a piece I did after my first attempt at sculpting a full bust. Once I had the bust complete it just looked rather plain and a bit alien. I decided to cut the head at 3/4 and placed it on a flat piece of clay. I think that change really added more interest [...]

The Dancer (Unfinished)

This was my next attempt at a full-body sculpture, unfortunately, it was never finished.
