Image of the Day - The Blood Oak

Click to Enlarge and View the Face Close Up

This charming fellow is called the Blood Oak. he is an experimental prototype sculpture. The intent was to create a driftwood sculpture creature who was half tree. He's not complete yet but I'm pleased with him so far. He uses natural clay to form the base and face over a piece of cypress driftwood. The arms were created by drilling a hole through the wood and extending a heavy gauge piece of wire which was then covered in clay. Foaming glue was then used to seal the piece together and to create a series of drips. There were four layers of foaming glue, each left to dry partially before adding another until the drip had the proper length. I suspect that if I do future pieces in this series that each will develop distinct personalities that are based on the shape of the driftwood. Its an interesting experiment in form.

He will most likely be merged into the Revenant Series and become part of the mythos of that series along with future brothers and sisters.
