sneak peek

I managed to finish a sculpture this week, in spite of the weather (I am so ready for this winter to be over).

hbw detail

The idea came to me about a month ago, during an extra-long drive home.  It grabbed me by the hair and demanded that I order a new mannequin.  Then it took me to an antique store to shop for kitchen tools.  It demanded an eggbeater.  It rummaged through my studio and claimed an old wishbone and a little Russian doll.

I started working as soon as the mannequin arrived.  And now I am finished.

I have a queue of ideas that stretches back 10 years.  It’s unheard-of for me to have a new idea and start working on it immediately and complete the piece within a month.  I’m not quite sure what to make of it.  My head is still spinning.

More pictures later, when I’ve had some time to live with it.
