New Finish

I have been living with this sculpture for a few weeks and liked it.  But once I added an encaustic finish to my latest sculpture, this one needed to get smoother as well.

This Piece “Return” invites to be touched.  It looks smooth and flowing, therefore the surface needs to have that quality and continue that experience.  Finally I found a way to execute this with an encaustic finish.  It turned out a little redder than I expected- but why not add a little color?

Spiraling Beauty- sculpture to touch

With this sculpture I explored different textures.  I debated if I should try colors with this piece.  I ended up with slightly pigmented encaustic as final surface treatment.  It gives it  a warm glow. And it is so smooth and soft to the touch- that is what my sculptures are all about.  Sculptures to touch!

The other goal with working in cement is to create pieces that can withstand the weather and be outside in the garden.  This piece should be smooth enough that no water collects, and avoid problems with freezing ice. I will leave it outside this winter and test it out.
