Ready to dry off and go into the kiln now.  It's always exciting to reach this stage.

I've been working again all day. I think spring gives me more energy to get things done.  The figure now has hands and a few other additions. I can't wait to get my kiln filled and get on to the next stage of finishing this work.

I've been working on this sculpture for the last week.
Today I decided it was time to hollow it out.  This always feels a little bit disturbing to me, dismembering something I have been working so hard to make look human.  This one is particularly disturbing to me since I am basing the figure on my father.  This is the hollowing in progress.
This is the figure reassembled.  I will add hands tomorrow and then finish the rest of the parts of the piece.

Some other work in progress waiting to go in the next bisque.
