Life-Size



This piece was found at Alki Beach in West Seattle. I had been wanting to carve a "Greek" Style sculpture, and I could see the drapery in the raw piece. I never know the pattern or direction of the material, I let that come to me as I am carving. I try not to have too much of a preconcieved idea beforehand, to allow the piece to speak to me.

Here I am in the first few hours of carving with my chainsaw, blocking out the figure and going with the flow of the natural driftwood.

Here I have begun to shape the folds of the dress. I think one of the most difficult things to do in sculpture is to carve drapery over a body. You have to constantly be aware of where the body is and not distort the overall shape of the figure.

Here I am blocking out the drapery and developing the folds and the flow of the material.

The chalk lines are a very rough idea of where I want to cut, or where the body should show through the drapery.

After many hours and days of carving, the drapery is really taking shape, the form is exactly where I want it to be. Next step is sanding and detailing the drapery.

Here I am still refining the drapery folds, while being mindful of the body underneath.

The body has been oiled with a clear oil to show the natural color of the wood.
