Sculpture of the Week 9/20/11

I wanted to focus this week on my piece, Above It All. It was first created out of clay, then cast in bronze at the foundry. A bronze sphere is made to go under it, then a custom stainless steel base. The inspiration behind this piece came from actor Rene Auberjonois (who played Odo in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). Rene owned land with me in the woods of New Hampshire. He used to draw happy little figures that, later on, inspired me to draw a girl dancing on top of a blue sphere. Here she is in bronze form, above the earth, the universe, her own universe.
