Raw Driftwood Female Torso

Life-Size



This piece was found in Northern California at the mouth of the Klamath River. Right away I began seeing a long flowing dress. 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.

This is the beginning of the back of the torso. I took advantage of the natural flowing wood on the back of the piece to create folds blowing in the wind. This is my favorite part of this sculpture!

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, sanding, sanding!

Here is the finished piece! I really love the natural driftwood at the top, and the forward movement of this sculpture! She has a natural finish on the dress to match the weathered driftwood. The chest is oiled a clear oil to reveal the beautiful redwood.
