Nautilus, my first figurative

Recommended Posts

Hello to all.

 

Here is a small figurative work I finished recently. 11cm long 6 cm wide. The original root almost asked for it :o Unfortunately I have no pics from the beginning. It was fun to create sth like that, maybe I will do more...

Hello Janel

 

Thx for asking :o Well, I really can say that I saw that shape from the very beginning in that root. So I took it out, although there now is some bark left because the proprotions forced me to do so and the inclusions were deeper than expected. But I don't find that really disturbing. Gives it a touch of fossile, I think. I had no camera at that time so I have no photo of the original root.

Due to my affinity to all denizens of the sea and their fantastic shapes I thought it would be not really a change of style to do sth figurative in that way. And maybe it fits in this forum a bit more than most of my other works. Although I never felt rejected here at all, anyway! :)

 

Greetings,

 

Dino
