Angel #2, Standing

Just started Angel #2, Standing.  I'm enjoying working in wet clay.  Usually I work in oil based clay which is built around an armature, and is good only for making a mold around, and then finishing in bronze.  Wet clay is water based.  The walls of the sculpture will be carved to be a consistent width; when it dries completely it will be fired in a kiln.  It may be glazed, or oil painted to finish.  These angels will be a one-of-a-kind sculpture - no additional casts after the one and only.
