It's been a while since I have posted an update, largely due to flat hunting and commissions. Over the next few weeks I'll be posting up images of new work and what I've been up to over summer.
First off are my canopic jar series.
Making figures, I often find myself thinking about the idea of esscence. That which which living creatures have, that defines them as different from an object and how best this may be modelled to give a semblance of life.
These jars are based on Egyptian funeral urns, which would have contained the organs removed during the mummification process.
