First draft in clay

Once the armature is up, I block, in clay, the general movements of the figure.  These photographs take you to the end of the first draft.

Matt Johnson in South Australia

Back in August Deputy Agent General of South Australia, Matt Johnson, undertook a short, but highly effective trip around South Australia to promote the Matthew Flinders memorial statue project and introduce collectors to the maquette.  His efforts resulted in numerous maquette sales and partnerships with key individuals and organisations.  Some photographs of his trip have recently surfaced.  Here is Matt in full swing at, appropriately enough, Flinders University in Adelaide.
