PostSubject: Gemsbok Female Antelope   Mon 13 Jun 2011, 15:08

I've been working on this Gemsbok for some weeks now and finally cured it in the oven today - I couldn't have made it without the brilliant help of Roger, Christophe, Numaan, Robert and Egbert - you guys have helped me enormously!!!!! Thank you very very much for all your time in reviewing her!!
I made her out of a new clay I bought which, as I mentioned, is oven cured - it's the same clay as Joan used for his beautiful rhino.
So here she is - I hope to make some moulds from her so I won't be painting her yet:

I'm very proud to had the chance of helping but what we are seeing here is 100% Harriet's talent!!! cheers
I don't want to comment this figure because my poor vocabulary will not make justice to it! :)

I also will not make comparisons with figures from other members, any member as his style and all are very talented... but a masterpiece was born in STS forum!

Harriet, I am speechless, your antelope is really fantastic, I just add any other adjective to describe it is a real jewels écrain already without her.
Even without paint, we can distinguish detail.
Harriet you return to the big leagues with this achievement, the most complete,
registered - me on the list when you have copies I pressed very happy.

cheers cheers cheers sunny queen flower

Thank you Jake! The clay is called Super Sculpey - it's quite expensive but really really good.

Some updates on the Gemsbok Mould:

Firstly, I'm having it done by Border Fine Arts, they have their own mould and casting company.
I've been in contact mainly with Ray Ayres and one of his work colleagues. I'm meeting Ray Ayres tonight to give him the Gemsbok, as he lives just down the road from me.
So it's all quite exciting, I don't know how long it will take for them to make the moulds and casts, but I'll let you know when they're finished. Very Happy

I predict a great career ahead of you, with people searching ebay for your name the way they search for "Ayres" or "Lindner." Can we say we 'knew you when'? :)

Well, I met him, he was really nice and liked my Gemsbok! He was also interested in what else I had made and ask me to send him some photos of what I've done. He said they're always looking for sculptors and painters. bounce bounce bounce
