The birth of something new does not look like much yet. I have had feedback that my maquette looking like a figure of eight on it’s side might be too imposing in the suggested position. This is tricky as I spend most of my time trying to make sculptures that have lots of impact and that are striking to the eye. Here it seems we need something more gentle with less immediate impact. I am thinking of a form broadly spherical. The outline produced will be more gentle than the ‘eyes’ that goggle from the previous idea. The surface idea I have is one borrowed from an old sculpture of mine involving conical hills and conical valleys. The nails you see here mark the tops of the conical hills. I will apply clay tomorrow. The wire is to try and stop the clay falling off.
