Study in White - Post #2

Here are some recent images of my first attempt in porcelain. There has been more refinement of detail areas such as teeth and neck musculature. Final texture is almost complete. So far working in porcelain hasn't been too difficult. We'll see how good my hand building technique is after the firing.                                                

.This object, if it survives firing , is for me so far an incomplete idea. Many of my works start out as a technical exercise much like this model. After a time , I begin to play with different aspects of the work.
 I find adding  humorous or ironic content to a model like this might work. We'll see. 


  1. Oh Art, Congratulations for finding your way through to this strange and wonderful world of blogging.
    I'm so delighted to have a way to see your latest work and thoughts on it. You are a greatly gifted artist and I'm so pleased to be able to follow you.

  3. memories of gross anatomy first year med school
    I am sure you know art but some of your readers may not that gross anatomy means the anatomy you can see with the naked eye without use of magnifying devices. It is so beautiful, the form and structure.

  4. Thank you, Margie for the kind words.
