The Process

Making the first body took the longest. Wrestling with the chicken wire to make it do what I wanted and learning how to work with paper and dextrin to cover the armature was slow and painful.

5 bodies, luckily stacking as I had hoped. It was a *very* good thing I worked over spring break.
Night before installation. 5 covered bodies, waxed with floor polish to make them extra glossy, and the table I managed to make *very* last minute. I had originally planned to make a pedestal but the table really helped to elevate the sculpture whereas the pedestal probably would have looked too clunky.
