Wild Hair - #1

1/2

This sculpture was a new venture using many separately carved, abstract shapes all entwined and fixed into the scalp of the dancer's head in dowel joint fashion. I had never seen another like it before and despite the long hours spent creating the hair effect, it is a concept I knew I would definitely revisit and develop.

The figure is sapele wood and the 21 individual hair pieces are made of tulip wood. The sculpture is glued and screwed into a bathstone base to create stability.
