This sculpture is following my usual method of having an overall idea about what I am doing and allowing myself and the sculpture to evolve during the process of making.
Starting from the mold and building the head in plaster first, then de-molding the head from the rubber mold. The next step is to add layers of surface texture and points of interest. On this occasion it is dried ornamental grass standing in for hair. I intended to have a bit of fun with it as well – using the hair style usually associated with tattoos, piercings etc. but then calming the face to look less threatening.
