Image of the Day - The Ice Spirits Sculpture
Ice spirits is one of the more unusual sculptures I've put together. It is a concept sculpture I am calling a "capped sculpture". Capping means that I've encased the sculpture between two tiles. This allows a more three dimensional feel to the piece and allows the piece to be displayed in any position. There is no front or back. Its all in the viewers perspective. The center piece was made from a very fragile dried juniper wood, frozen with an epoxy to keep its pattern but stop the decay of the wood.
This is considered a prototype for other capped pieces I will create in a series. A complete photo shoot will be done soon showing the piece at all its various angles.
There is a tutorial for this sculpture which can be found at the following link, that outlines how it was created and the steps of the process.
