My little statuette was recently seated, and now Final Seating is fully finished: mounted and ready to show. This 12″ tall figure started life as my first to scale wire armature, and is now a fragile translucent skeletal figure that I am really quite fond of!
And it is available for purchase directly from me or at Saatchi Online.
After some time in my studio I seated this figure on a broken wine glass “chair”. He really seems comfortable, and I decided that I like the result. It took a few more days to add a chain and decide on the base, but now it is clearly a finished work. I attached the pieces in two parts for durability: this delicate figure is secured to the seat, but is separate from the heavy base. The glass lens is firmly attached to the metal with an appropriate 2-part epoxy glue. And there are no sharp edges now.
This way the work can be properly handled as two pieces, and packed appropriately for shipping as needed.
