Interesting Hair

I have been working on a small bust just recently with a different kind of body and hair. Here are some photo’s of the piece.IMG_3678 IMG_3679 IMG_3680

And this is how I continue….

As I build upwards, I smooth the rectangular coils into place. Sometimes I will need to modify the shape fairly drastically, So in one picture I have cut a section where I will be able to insert some more clay. Sometimes I need to do the opposite and remove areas.

After continuing past the neck, I need to make sure the clay is firm enough to support the head. This also affects the shape slightly and how far the jaw protrudes.

With the basic form in place, I let the clay firm up a little before refining the shape and deciding how to proceed with the facial features and details. TBC


I live in Bristol, UK where there is quite a vibrant street painting scene (for better or worse). I liked this face though.


Coffee Cup Angel Part 2


The good people at Coffee No.1 seemed pleased with my efforts and replaced the plain cup with my angel. If you are in the vicinity of Gloucester Road, Bishopston, Bristol, UK, do have a look (and maybe a coffee as well).

Coffee No.1 have a website here.
