13/13 Sculpting Armatures: Viewpoint Leading to Casting

Hello i f you are a returning friend, and Hello to you if you are new to primordial passages.  I am very much a begginer in this venue.  Blogging is very interesting I have seem some lovely and beautiful works and ideas from those of you who are following me.  Thank You for your courage to create, sometimes I wonder if it is a need to create that makes us more wholly a person that creativity in any idea or project in and of life.  I feel so much better in many ways just trying to draw a line everyday even if I miscue.  Please forgive my short comings as for now it is very important for me to blog everyday like a line a day.  I leave my mistakes in craftmanship for now only to build a consistent practice to learn and know how to do these blogs.  My work schedule has not allow me a moment to study the tutorials soon tho, I will practice those too.

So today, I am staying on the sculpting view.  This bust is WIP a “Work In Progress” its shortcomings in its incomplete state is still left to my ability to really work on its completion.  Armatures offer support. Sometimes they also get in the way when they do hit em’ where they protrude with a hammer or cut out the protrusion.  One of my favorite venerable professors of art almost always had us sculpt in clay with out armatures.  Mr. Matteson, was a big believer in the integrity of the human form to stand on its own, as its own support.  This is an excellent approach if you can control your materials.  More picts on this soon, my mistakes may be “taking-off points” in your continuem of a visual language, then we both make creative art.

This bust below is the build upon the armature posting of yesterday, you may notice it has a larger base added to its support.  We used both approaches to sculpting making forms with or without armatures, both have a benefit and both have limits and challenges.  No armature much freedom, especially if your media is cooperating with your building, assemblage of space.  Armatures are durable give you something to push against but if in the way stall you till you remedy the obstacle…Well I am quite chatty to day wish I had more time.  However for now Thanks again for dropping by soon I will be hanging a small show, it is a different type of begining.  This little show will be posted as it grows and it will give me a metation point, a tacit observation of my primordial passages.   Take Care and Be Safe, think warm thoughts this makes all our hearts warm.  Enjoy the pleasures of life – – – peace  g…
