I have always wanted to sculpt in clay, but for one reason or another I have never sculpted anything in clay until about a month ago when I sculpted a hand.

Sculpting in clay has taken discipline, observation and patience.

It has also been a very humbling and spiritual experience.

Thank you Allen for being my first subject and for allowing me to sculpt you.

Thanks to Ginny Amsler for taking the photos of Allen for me.
