A Southwest Direction


Just finished a new sculpture called “Mesa”. The overall size is 24 inches wide, 22 inches long, and 12 inches deep. This is another work created for my ongoing series of western images. This particular skull and scorpion focus on the southwest.


The scorpion was created by making a wooden armature and then adding layers polymer clay over the wood. The bison skull is made of cedar wood and the backboard is wood with polymer layers and sand. All the objects are painted with acrylic paint.


The time it took to create “Mesa” was much shorter than the previous pieces, about three months. Now that I am more confident with my techniques and materials I hope to be able to generate more work in a timely fashion.

I have three more works in various states of completion. The next sculpture that should be finished soon will be “Medicine Box”.
