8 Months – a first look at the clay

It is always nice to see new work developing and here is one of two new works which I have been making in the first months of 2021.

Clay model ofa pregnant woman, seen from behind.

First sight of ‘8 Months’ a study, depicting the miracle of procreation.

I’m privileged to use the facility in Richard Clarke’s enlargement studio.

‘8 Months’ from the front, in clay, in the workshop.

8 Months‘ is particularly relevant at the moment as I am about to lose my wonderful PA for about a year, as she is now 5 months pregnant.  Maternity leave is getting near and my life will be in turmoil without my ‘right hand’, who I rely upon so heavily!

This work was originally made by me in wax, but the armature was not strong enough and so I have now made a clay edition.  It will soon be ready for moulding and then will be cast in bronze at the foundry, as a further work to be displayed in my studio in West Ashling, where all the work is for sale.
