Sculpture

I enjoy working in a variety of materials, but sculpting is one of my favorites. I find working with clay to be a meditative act where my hands take over. Metal casting is also a wonderful process. It is great for both creating jewelry and working with the figure. Although the lost wax casting method is certainly intensive, the results are extremely satisfying.
