Finally, something new

Yes, it has been a while.  I'm sorry about that, but it is what it is.  I have plenty of ideas, but not much opportunity to work them up into actual sculpture.  The ideas just don't seem to want to come out of my head.  Maybe they're not ready yet, but it is frustrating.  This week though I've been having a play with these feather shapes.

This is the second feather I made... first attempt wasn't quite so successful.

The eye shapes are made with a mould and the feather is built up around them.  It took me a couple of goes to figure out how to get the feather to look nice, and the first attempt didn't come out very well, but the second attempt looks okay and I think I could do something fun with these feathers.
