‘Chalice’ sculpture - first look
I tend to work on sculptures in parallel, so I have time away from each one while it’s in progress to be able to approach it with fresh eyes. This means that they tend to finish in surges (it also makes sense to do all of the metal and woodworking to mount them in a single stage).
So, only a short while after the completion of ‘Archetype’ here is ‘Chalice’. There are a number of common themes - it’s also carved from polyphilite, though this has a lot more translucent green than rust red, and also is painted to get a contrast of textures / surfaces. Unlike ‘Archetype’ this one is mounted on an aluminium alloy rod to suspend it above the base.
More pictures soon!
