I have never thought about sculpting people until this job came across my desk. I saw the sketch my customer gave me and it just spoke to me. I knew if I was going to get the opportunity to sculpt people...this was it.
I went back in fourth with the detail issue, how much was needed? Should there be eyes, ears and fingers? So I decided to just start building the wax model and hopefully, it would hit me at some point how much detail was needed.
Well this is what I have learned...No, you don't need eyes to show feeling. A simple turn of the head, their arms embarrassing each other, her leg lifting up can all say "I love you"
Their hands blend into each others body becoming one.
The finished piece will be cast in bronze, polished and possibly antiqued.
