Life and Death: Sculpture

So the initial design of this project had to be inspired by masterworks, so I chose paintings by Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, and Georgia O’Keefe.  I started to make this around the time I lost my cat, and during the process I lost my dog, so I had a lot of time to think about the balance of life and death and loss and hope.   This project helped me a lot to deal with those emotions.  The project started with a slab of clay, that I sculpted to my design.  I then casted a mold, let it set, and made a plaster cast, which I then proceeded to paint.
