I have submitted this piece to the unusual self portrait project but thought I would also post it here for interest. It is in white clay.

I like what I see...how can I see a view of the woman's face?

Hi, Shriner and roxanne_mc

Thanks for your comments. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I agree that it would be really great to see a more active sculpture forum - I'm sure it will happen.

I'm working on getting a picture done of the face - although I should say there is not too much detail there.

OK, sorry it took so long. I think sculpture is even more difficult to photograph than painting. I was trying to light it to show the detail but the lighting created its own atmosphere.

Anyway, here are 'tis:

Thanks so much for posting the other views..very nice..the overall compostition is very appealing.. I have to admit I really like the cat the best.. sweet little face on the cat. Why did you consider a more detailed face on the cat and not the person?
Just curious.

Yes, I think you are right - this has turned out to be a sculpture of two halves.

My aim with this piece was to try a sort of self portrait but, rather than go for something literal, I was aiming to capture an emotion. I also wanted to simplify the shapes quite a lot. I think I got something of the feeling I was trying to get but if I was to have another go at this one I think I would try to push it further and simplify much more.

So, for me, if anything, it's the cat that doesn't look right. I'm not quite sure what my intention was with the cat - I think he belongs in a different scultpure. Isn't that typical? Turning up, looking cute and getting all the attention! LOL. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks for your interest

Sandra, I really like this one. Simply and beautifully done :) The white clay seems a perfect choice for the style of this piece. What size was it done? Good work! Think this might be my favorite of your sculptures so far.

I remember this one :D It's excellent. Could you paint/glaze this if you wanted to ?

I really like the simplicity of this piece.
I think the cat adds an almost whimsical feel to it
