Sculptures - Wall-Mounted

 

 

Faces from the Studio Floor

 

 

All the faces came from scraps of leftover wood that I'd swept up off the floor and kept. I didn't make any of the shapes purposefully and once I'd started to make the construction, I didn't allow mayself to make anything for it.  I did use a few beads in the eyes which was a bit of a cheat, but they would have otherwise been binned.

Framed and glazed.

Elemental Brown

 

Torn between using colour and letting the natural brown of the wood be the colour of the finished piece... I painted some of the dowel and the wire was white so there is colour there.

 

 

 

 

Centre - made from the old cot, dowelling, beads and coathanger wire.

What Lies Beneath

 

Dowel and off cuts.

​I cut off the surface of the dowel using an electric cutter and was left with a wonderful pattern on the dowel below and decided to keep that. The central part is turned on a wood lathe. Originally I intended to have a central column but the hollow works better. There is an in/out, negative/positive feel to this piece.
