#225 In the studio: "Equus Found Fragments I & II" enlargement . . .

Last year I was commissioned to enlarge Equus Found Fragments (see image at right) and the work is now being cast. Resizing the award-winning piece was an unusual assignment since the process was neither in-the-round: having length, width, and depth; or bas-relief: having length and width only.

Below, measurements were taken from the maquette; the piece was doubled in size, making each fragment approximately 42" wide.  A block-in of dense foam was created and laid on a flat surface.  I then covered the foam with warm clay and modeled the sculpture.  The piece will be presented as a wall-hanging.
