Custom Clay Figure



I've been busy with art related projects, so busy in fact, that I haven't been able to keep up with blog entries about the various results!

A few weeks ago, "The Horn Man", otherwise known as Bill Nemoyten, celebrated his birthday with family and friends. Since this happened in Northern CA, I was sadly unable to attend. However, I was honored to be asked by his daughter, my dear friend Jo, to make one of my custom 'horny guy' polymer clay figures in Bill's likeness.
It was a load of fun. I boosted up the size quite a bit from the little lumps I've been making lately. This was at Ian's request (Ian is Jo's husband... and happens to be a fan of monumental sculpture.) I doubt the figure was much more than 4 inches tall when completed. (Someday, Ian, The Horn Man may loom over all of the Bay Area. I'm just not there yet! ;)

I have posted a picture of Bill from his website, thehornman.com which I worked from to make the sculpture in the second picture. It was a joy.

He certainly is amazing. I know you heard from him directly (and from us) how much he loved it.

And I love the idea of him blowing his horn at giant size all over! ;)
