Anthropomorphic Beast Sculptures as Mystical Creatures
A recent blog post explained my inspiration for my current series, Mystical Creatures. This is a follow up post with pictures of two new pieces. I am very pleased with the outcomes so far. I wanted to share pictures from all angles and some detailed images because a full frontal does not seem to capture the three dimensionality of the work.
The mystical creatures sculptures have some common traits; The colors are earthy. The textures are quite organic while some markings are geometric reminding the viewer that these creatures are not of this world. Furthermore, the marks are meant to be energetic currents symbolic of our own human energy system. Each creature, manifesting a spiritual connection, yet lacking the traditional spiritual symbols. The mystical connection is not meant to be a literal interpretation, but rather a surreal take on each individual’s spiritual journey. It is up to the viewer to deepen and personalize the interpretation of this work.
All of the mystical beasts are made with paper clay and finished with underglazes, stains and glazes. Some of the sculptures are embellished with Swarovski crystals or metal objects.
