February 2011
last week I got Geronimo back from the fireplace and it didn't work out as good as I had hoped. It was a baked accidentally on ceramic temperature of 1200°C which was too much. I wanted it to be baked at a maximum of 1000°C. During baking a sculpture will shrink, the higher the temperature the more pressure on the sculpture and the more it will shrink. This can cause cracks. And so on the line were I sliced it into two halves so I could hollow it out, it cracket along that line at the base of the shoulder. I can still fix that. More problematic however is that due to the high firing temperature the final result is much harder, and so also much Harder to work on for fine tuning.
On the other hand I am quite happy that the face isn't damaged!
I'm also working on a few other things that I might load up in the (near) future

24-10-2010 So the wet clay stadium is finaly done. I will now let it dry a bit before I will hollow it out. When that part is done I will do some more fine tuning on the hair, making it more smooth flowing.

Hey everybody (who's reading this),I strated working on a new sculpture buste. i am trying to do a portrait of Geronimo the last of the apache "war chiefs".
So far i found out that it's quite difficult. Mostly because i have to stick to his face while sometimes the clay wants do go into another direction and just use the pictures as a reference.
...The clay seems to have a mind of it's own, specially on parts were my mind is blank due lack of knowledge....

Well done Native American sculptures. I am married to a Native American woman and live with her on a reservation. She was impressed with your work. Well done.

Your sculptures are amazing! I am full a blood Native American, from the Comanche Nation - Quahadah band, and artists, such as yourself, bring the proud out when I see the fierceness of the facial expressions in your artwork. I hope to see more of your work soon. Keep up the excellent work my friend!

Thanx, I am glad to be able to bring out proud feelings with people who's ancenstors I try to sculpt.

I hope to hear back from you - I am using your sculptures as references for practice drawings. A character of mine is based on Native American peoples and the depth in your pieces really help to make facial features really make sense. Thanks for your work.
