That's one serious case of ick. ;-)

This detail in this piece is astonishing. It's brings to mind carved ivory sculptures a neighbor had when I was a kid. It's somewhat disturbing, yet completely organic and beautiful. She is a character from stories that words alone could never tell.

I found you while following interesting things, beginning at my friend Boggleboy's page. You do incredible work.

I made this peice as a private exploration. The desire to engrave my work and gouge and marr the skin was very overpowering and a part of me feared that it was too extreme and would take over. Up till this moment I added engraving as a small tattoo to various fairy peices. Then one day I decided to let it go on a project that didnt matter.
This peice empowered me .. I wasnt stoned as a witch and the peice turned out beautiful so , I learned to trust a bit more and now I can let that part of me into the full light of day!
cool I know bogglboy:D

The chance you took served you well. Leacothea is totally my favorite of your works. It's not simply the fact that you engraved her, but the placement of those acts seems "biologically" perfect. The markings seem to be exactly where they should or would be.

I think the most striking thing about your work, which I haven't mentioned in any of my writing yet (and I'll make this the last one for now, for tracking purposes, LOL) is that your chosen genres, faerie folk and dark works, are not typically the kind of things that attract my attention, well, until now.

They always seem to flow natrally and organic from the surface.*shrugs* Its a mindless kind of impulse. You can see it on many of my sculptures now. This one is still special to me and in my private collection.

Im honored I could seduce you into my realm:) Even though my subject matter seem a bit childish and escapist... the emotions and symbolic meaning isnt. Also I just have an appreciation for the nude human form and nature.So it can be seen and enjoyed as just that if your a left brainer not given to flights of fancy.

WOW!!!! it's lovely! i guess the only bad thing about it is that she isn't a full figure. fabulous as is but you do such flawless figures that it seems almost a shame.

mm.I like the simplified form ,but a full figure would have been nice too.
Shes bigger than most of my work. if a full figure she would be probably about 20" that wont fit in my oven. But I could try that in peices.

or you could just make a small full version of her ;) . i just really love all your pieces and this stuck out to me as something that was magnificent as it is but would be just out of the park as a full body.

Oh thats not asking much! all that encrusted detail in a tiny thing.haha I have downsized a bit from her to 12" thats easier to handle.
maybe a 12" version would be big enough to keep the detail.
