Once the mold was cleaned up and all the bolts drilled and fastened, everything was broken down and pulled away from the original and put away for future use. Once I thoroughly cleaned the head area,I went back to finishing the mascot sculpture like before.
The final mascot sculpture can be seen above in my banner and at Snarlingcrow Studios website.
Look for complete project progression photos of this mascot sculpture at a later date.

If you really enjoy recycled art then you really should enjoy these sculptures that are made from found hubcaps by U.K. artist Ptolemy Elrington.
He said that he lives at a sharp bend in the road that passes by his home and began collecting the hubcaps originally to build a suit of armor but soon changed his mind when he noticed that they were quite marine-like in appearance.
And the rest, they say, is history.
Read more of about his interesting art style at the Daily Mail.

I'm a big fan of hand sculpted jewelry that keeps it from looking mass manufactured.
I think that Misa has made that happen very well here.
Misa Hamamoto, the creator and designer of Los Angeles-based Misa Jewelry, draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewelry from her island upbringing in Hawaii and Micronesia. She incorporates her affinity with nature into her designs through sculpted organic forms and precious and semiprecious gemstones from her world travels. Through the ancient art of lost-wax casting, she skillfully carves her designs from wax, which then undergo a casting process that solidifies molten metal.
Misa graduated from UCLA with a BA in Economics and worked for several investment firms, but she always felt displaced. After realizing her love for creating art and jewelry was what truly made her happy, she finally decided to leave the “corporate world” and merged her passion and career into one.
Misa’s unique line of jewelry is entirely handmade in her Los Angeles studio and consequently avoids the mass-manufactured look with her distinctive style. Her love and thought put into each design and years of jewelry-making experience clearly shine through to all of her collectors.
“My goal is to celebrate the balanced union between the beauty of nature and the style of the modern world…the island girl meets the city girl." -- Misa

The apparent weightlessness of this chair is being accomplished with a counterbalance disk and by its striking of the cat on the moving table. The motion of the chair never will follow a set pattern. Its always random.

A great idea for keeping all of those jewelry chains tangle-free while maintaining a sculptural look.

I've always been fascinated by kimonos. I suppose that its because I've never owned nor wore one. Their overall design can be very interesting especially from a sculptural viewpoint. But none are more interesting than Susan McGehee's. See her website for more info about her kimono designs.

Snappy's taking a snooze after eating only half of his hot dog. That's the way to live when you are as laid back as he is.
