There are so many hours and stages of creating my clay sculptures that I find it interesting to look back at what they were and who they became.
I definitely feel my sculpting improving although my neck and shoulders are not thanking me for the many hours I have been working on these recent pieces. Each one probably takes 5 hours to sculpt, refine and sand with more hours for the various layers of undercoat, paint, crackle, ageing and varnish.
They are a labour of love!
