01.29.2007 - Fred

I caught a show last night on Gallery HD about Tom Otterness, a sculptor in NYC that creates these whimsical works and has them strewn about the city. I liked his style a lot, and it got me thinking about how much I enjoyed my sculpture classes while I was in college and how it had been near upon forever since I'd played with some clay.

So, at lunch today I hit the art store and picked up some Fimo and a needle tool, and this evening I commenced to playing with clay.

Its been a long time since I've done anything like this, and the results certainly aren't the best ever, but the final result made me smile so I thought I'd share him. Kate named him Fred.

Fred the clay sculpture.

In progress photos can be found on Flickr. Up next - a body for 'ol Fred.
