It has been many months since I’ve had the chance to do new work – but spring is here and finally I’m able to restart some projects. I’ve been doing some Apoxy-clay experiments combining them with a variety of powdered metals. It takes quite a bit of the powder to give it the shine, and a kind of buffing as it starts to harden too. I’m really pleased.
The new insect and arachnid sculptures are a real mix of materials. Epoxy, Apoxy Clay, watch parts, diodes and capacitors, beads, metals, glass – all of it merging together like some runaway Terminator. In fact, I had started a Terminator series of bone and wire work a few years back. I think it is time to revisit some of those ideas incorporating the epoxy into the mix. The epoxy is the flesh while the clockwork parts, gears and electronics are the decorations.
