Sculpture Class: What We’re Up To

You can read the rest of this series here.

Yesterday was my last sculpture class!

A bittersweet moment, for sure, but my sculpture also turned out very nicely, I think. I’ll share the final product in a post next week, but today, I thought I’d fill you in on what some of the other students in my class are doing. I interviewed Alfred and Stephanie in the video above; here are some of the others:

Amy's original plan was to do a pisces symbol with two fish, but the stone she got was closer to the shape of a single fish, and looking fishier every day.

Lisa was carving a mermaid out of a nice chunk of walnut.

Joseph was working on a few sculptures over the weeks, in both stone and wood, including this abstracted figure in walnut.

Stephanie's abstract sculpture is alabaster, but a very different color from my own stone. Here you can see she sanded and polished it to a high sheen.

Tune in for the grand finale next week!
