Using sketches for creating sculpture is often a great tool. Its also very cool to see a 2-d image emerge into a 3-d one!
The sketches I make are chaotic, placed in various notebooks between two studios, and in no particular order. They encompass lots of ideas, notes, web research and symbolism.
The above pics are of the works recently worked on: Orchidea Imaginarium (2020) and the Crystalis series (2021). Below is the beginning sketches for a figurative series I will be working on next year. And like the sketches, that new series is roughly hewn not even fully downloaded yet...
Then onto some more botanical sculpture ideas below that I am playing with.....
