#355 In the studio: Corgi Door Knocker

I've created many door knocker designs over the years and one of my galleries has a client who requested a
Corgi motif for a Christmas gift.  I love sculpting dogs and creating functional art is a time- honored assignment
for the sculptor.

The dark clay was difficult to photograph and I will show another image after the sculpture has been patinaed.
Also, I've included a picture of the work after one coat of rubber mold material was applied.  This process - called a blanket mold - requires no shimming.  For more info about mold making, start with post #352, Dec. 1, 2012.
