These carvings were based on a distorted self portrait. Both items were carved from freshly set plaster, allowing for easier carving and the creation of a big mess.

Surreal Self Portrait 1 & 2
The smaller nose was carved from a Solo cup sized chunk, and the larger one from a gallon milk jug.
Mrs. G (I dont think she likes it when I call her Mrs G) says I should move onto carving stone for my final project, but i really like working with plaster.
We have also been working with clay. Working with clay was ok, but messier than i care to deal with. I felt like I had to stop to wash my hands every five minutes.
Next is wire sculpture.
