The second framework has become the Leviathan, the guardian of the Aquasphere as The Wyvern is the guardian of the Lithosphere. I will make more versions. These will have a pale gold colour. Next I will make a larger Osprey, guardian of thew Atmosphere, in the same  clay(Scarva ES50 Crank) and then move to the black clays and re-do the set.

The Wyvern IV, Sept 2014

The Wyvern IV, Sept 2014

The frame-work for this one was much more developed and lead the form. I made a second one so I could keep the flow going around the drying periods but I didn’t need to break from Wyvern IV; it was strong enough.

This is asking a lot of a clay. But this is Scarva ES50 again and reckon I’ll get away with it.

The Wyvern and the Osprey, 2014.

The story is coming together. My policy of don’t ask too many questions, let the work flow, put in the hours,review completed forms, is working well.

The idea of the Wyvern, guardian within the land ,started with the Balarat Pit Marker although I didn’t know the name. The Wyvern is a force and can take many forms. The Harbingers I’ve made are similar figures.

These busts are developing slowly as my portrait skills heat up and I can work more freely.

Photo-Shoot of your Work

 

 

Photo shoot 3Getting affordable, top-quality Photos of your work can be a nightmare but it is essential. In Osprey Studio’s second open Photo-Shoot TV Cameraman Stephen Foote (http://www.stephenfootephotography.co.uk/) will talk you through the images he takes with his posh (very) camera and also guide you to take good images with your own camera using ordinary ,domestic accessories and lights. It will be an intense day ( do bring a note book) but very rewarding. You will get a minimum of 6 publishing-quality images in digital form to use in any way you want and the pictures you take yourself. And  you will go home with a good understanding of how to improve your photography in your own Studio.

We will start at 9.30 am. Bring something to share and we will have a relaxed Pot-luck lunch and there will be tea, coffee, or soft drinks available all day. I learnt a great deal last time talking shop with the other Makers. It was a lovely day.

Let me know as soon as possible approximately what work you will bring so we can be well prepared.

There is parking right in front of the Studio.  For info and directions click ‘Visit The Studio’ to your left.

There are only 6 places so do book early.
