LOST IN THOUGHT
Bronze on Granite | 6 x 8 x 9" | Edition of 12
Lost in Thought, an older nude woman with her head resting on a tall-backed chair, is lovely reminder of the wisdom and memories acquired with maturity. The model, an independent East coast woman with a taste for hard work and adventure, built her own straw-bale house on her land south-east of Santa Fe. She is a wonderful reminder of the strength and potential of all women! Many have remarked on her wise and thoughtful demeanor. At 11.5 " high,7.5 deep and 6" wide , she sits on a bronze high-backed chair, left open to reveal all the beautiful negative shapes created with a complex pose. The chair, reminiscent of our mother's dining room chairs, was created using sprue wax (the wax attached to the wax figure that is melted out to allow the air to escape when the molten bronze is poured into the investment mold in casting).
