Minstrel Of Hopelessness

Postby johnwalkeasy » Sat Sep 04, 2010 4:51 pm

My next sculpture will be a human skeleton seated on a stool playing a violin. It will be about 3ft tall. It will be built of steel &
onze.
The stool that I'll use for this work was started about 3 years ago. And it was intented for somthing else. It has been laying out in the back yard for 3 years.

Cant wait to see this one :) Do you intend to shape the bones ( as in the T-rex piece ) or will it be more abstract ?

Looks like it,s going to be a week or two before I can get back to this. My boss wants me to do a hammered copper wall piece for his condo in Panama City.
Also, a gallery contacted me though e-mail about my copper work. Don,t really know what to expect with that.
