Quickie post. This is the result of trying to do one sculpture last night. Goddess interruptus. Actually, after browsing some books on Greek sculptures, I'm itching to make some sculptures with "missing" pieces. A torso with just a portion of the head remaining, a standing figure "broken" unevenly across the chest, they all have such power and grace exuding from them.
Yep, my shadow Katie woke up before I could get done fixing the goddess last night. I did a pretty good job of building up all that glass for her belly and hips. Managed to get shoulders, breasts, and head. Then I broke her neck when I tried to remove the punty, so I just fire polished her as she is. I came up from the breezeway for a drink of water to find lights on and Kate up asking for me. . . Daddy won't do when she wants Mommy in the middle of the night. I think I could've added a new head and done a better job with the punty if I had gone back down there. If I was even better at it, though, I would've realized I could lay the glass down and come back to it sometime today. It's all about getting into a rhythm and applying your experience to the next attempt, isn't it? Maybe tonight I'll do a better job of it :)
