Trail art

Last week I started with my main creation this winter. I don't want to spoil all the fun and tell you what it is. But I do want to explain the general idea behind some new creations.

In some new sculpts I will use not only clay or resin (if casting), but also materials I find while mountainbiking or trailrunning. Mixing street art style with something close to me: junk. Sounds a bit strange, but I always liked to use 'worthless' stuff to make something new. In this case everything I find along the way. Especially natural 'junk'. Like rocks, wood, bones etc.
I have already made one Cungo with rocks in places where you anatomically would have bones; your spine for example. This is the white Cungo in previous post, more pictures on my site:
This combination of street art and trail junk I call trail art. So these months it is about finding the best contrasts between natural junk and street art. I am busy with one simple example which I hope to show very soon!

New Eyespresso

I finished a new Eyespresso. I am trying to experiment with paintstyles. This is inspired by 'Delfts blauw'. A traditional Dutch paintstyle used to decorate plates and tiles. I have used that several times. Now I made 'Delfts rood'. Grey background and red paint. Same type of decoration but with corners and no smooth curves. To give it some contrast with the sculpt.

Winter pics

Some winter pictures of known sculptures. To get them adjusted to a more natural habitat before I set them free in the wild.

Yes, long time ago I made a sculpt which I liked but still haven't made a mould of in it's original form. Cheese and Robit are derived from it. Now I will be using X in a slightly different form for my main sculpt this winter. What is 'X' you may think? Well it's now on top of my blog.

New Gogo: Gogo wasp

I finished a new Gogo bird. Paintjob was inspired by wasps and butterflies. I am pleased how it worked out.
