Business commitments have severely curtailed my sculpting over the last year. I have some small incomplete pieces that are not yet cataloged.
At last, as the tourist season reaches it's peak here in Turkey my involvement in our business is reducing. I have really missed my sessions in my studio, and Zyanya is my first large piece for almost a year. Made from a large river pebble, most of the head is the original pebble, only the facial features have been revealed.
My previous piece 'Sophie's Escape' is not completed, but I have been waiting for inspiration, which Zyanya may have provided.
Zyanya is an Aztec name meaning 'always; forever'.
This piece is dedicated to Mia, in memory of a lively kitten that came into our lives just a year ago and died on 26-August-2011. Her life essence has returned to the quantum pool all life essence comes from.
|There are no progress pictures for this piece, it just two 3-hour studio sessions to complete and I completely forgot about taking pictures.|
