Kirby-inspired Pop Sculpture

I made a lot of ceramic sculptural masks recently; photo shoots really slow down in the week leading to Christmas all the way to late January, and kids are on vacation, so there’s not much to do but sculpt. I watched a documentary on Famous Monsters of Filmland and tackled a bunch of those characters, and I also did several guys inspired by the late King of Comics, Jack Kirby.

If I tried to do a Neal Adams sculpture I wouldn’t know where to begin, but these characters have the strongest lines and weight and power. Currently up for grabs on Etsy. Feel free to contact me for commission requests!
