Works in 3D

I don’t do a lot of sculpture, but I do some. I enjoy sculpture. The sculptures are labors of love, that require an enormousĀ  number of work hours. The technique, which I loosely based of a technique used by the Greeks for masks for their tragedies is pretty involved. The masks and sculpture are considered as for sale unless otherwise noted.

Greek Tragedy Mask, Ageisthis, cloth, wire, plaster, oil paint inquire with artist.

I took a course, acting methods, with Dr. Kenneth Krauss. We needed to make a Greek mask for a reading of classic Greek tragedy. This is what I came up with.

A friend, Sandi Dollinger, asked me to create a prop for her play, “Hap’y Birthday Greta Garbo,” I made a wire armature, and used plaster of paris. She was very happy with what I produced, and honestly I was too. It’s a pretty unique piece of art. It also survived being knocked off a table during several rehearsals.

I made this for an even I was DJ-ing. Much to heavy to wear during my set (but I did wear it during most of the night). It is based on the Jim Henson created characters the Skeksis, in the movie “The Dark Crystal”
