In January 2017 I began a series of drawings to accompany the rabbit sculptures

 



My home basement studio makes juggling full time work and productive studio time possible!

Over the summer 2015 I took a mould making class at the University of Regina with Troy Coulterman. I learned how to make plaster and silicon moulds. The waste mould project developed into "Powder Blue" the first sculpture in the "Glancing Blows" series.

 

This sculpture combines a hand-made object with a piece of man-made funiture. It focuses on the competition for resources between nature and humanity.

 


"Powder Blue" hydrocal, wood and acrylic paint  2015
13 x 15 x 38"

starting with an armature and clay

 


my first time sculpting a large 3D object in clay


Dividing the clay model with aluminum, into what will become a 5 part mould


The clay object is then covered in plaster (first layer tinted to help when removing the cast object). 


After a number of layers are set it is broken apart and clay and armature are removed.

 


Then the pieces are put back together and sealed with more plaster - then hydrocal is poured in

 


The waste mould is chipped away (destroyed)revealing the hydro-cal positve, a one of a kind. 

 

 



Completed sculpture.


Installed work at "Function to Fantasy" at Slate Gallery September 2015 in Regina, SK
