Raw casts of shiny new things

In spite of the strange, un-California-like-cold molding and casting of the new sculpts has been going on. Here's an uncleaned and unfinished preview of the new pieces! The key hole is cast from a porcelain key hole plate from the early 1900's - one of those cool things you sometimes find lingering in antique shops that no one quite knows what to do with.

Something for the Holidays

I've been working on some new pieces, debuting at the Holiday sale at the SF Center for the Book, on Dec 11th. Something a bit different for the holidays and the new year, and something for those who just art as into fish and cephalopods as I am ;-)

And just for fun, some progress photos. I start with a sketch, and create a rough version of the general shape to work out the scale. Then start adding in the details, working large to small.

Check back soon for some images of casts and christmas ornaments!
