Hi, here are two recent sculpture bases for two of my sculptures. I would like to have better pictures but they have gone out the door already.
“Regrets” ~ First is a plaster casting of a gymnast I had as a model last year. It has a bronze coating which is more durable than paint and I can get it to shine and take a patina like solid bronze. The base is two boards of cherry. I have talked about “fire grain” which is my favorite figuring in cherry wood and this base is full of it.. I just don’t have the right pics. BUt I have four more of these to make, so I will show more later. I wanted the base to make the sculpture seem floating, for the emotion of regret/confusion I was trying to capture.
“Humanity” ~ Second is a sand cast aluminum sculpture on a soap stone and spalted maple base. I chose the maple to match the figuring in the soap stone.
Thanks for looking. ~ e
