This piece is a planned one of three. It comes out of me thinking about who we are when we’re asleep. The rising part was going to be just a ribbon, but I think it’ll look better as twisted drapery. I wanted to use the strength of bronze to make a piece with a heavy part held up by a slender part — trying to get a floating effect. She’ll have human hands to go with her human feet. I’ll probably make the other two pieces and get them to this stage before going further with this one as I’ll want their poses to work as a threesome.
Strutter is now available in my Etsy shop for US$120.
