Sailboat Saga ~ So many children, so little space

Assorted sculptures for sailboat sculpture

My very populated workspace!

Lately I’ve had a highly populated workspace with my assorted “work-in-progress” sculptures for my sailboat project. As I’ve been working on my pieces, I have tried to regularly take pics of my pieces. In order to give you a glimpse of my sculptures “as a whole” within my studio I attempted to squeeze in as many of my children sculptures as possible. I’m in the middle of sculpting seven different children sculptures. Some of them are nearly completed and others are in the beginning stages.

The photo above shows the beginning stages of two of the sculptures that will be placed on the day side of my sailboat. For some reason, I like how the wire forms look with the movement of their arms. Even without faces, you can get a sense of the personality of each sculpture.

A bird's eye view of my workspace

And here’s a bird’s eye view of my main workspace for sculpting my pieces. As the sculptures progress, my workspace gets smaller and smaller. The photo below is the beginning of a girl sculpture who will eventually be holding a bucket of paint up above her head. I like how the wooden model in the background is posed alongside the wire sculpture form. Each day I keep sculpting away, trying to get as much done as I can. This has been an ongoing process and I still have a few more updates planned for my sailboat project. Remember to keep your eyes open for my next article in the Sailboat Saga series.
