Head in Hands

Almost every time I create a sculpture I  cut the clay head off and sculpt it in my hands. It allows me to turn it and look at it from every angle. It assists me to be able to turn the head at will and see it from all perspectives. 

If you look at the sculpture below, with the man on a horse, you’ll see the head ‘blocked in’. That’s the first draft. This morning, 

I cut the head off and spent about 15 minutes creating this second draft. 

I know I will have a minimum of five drafts on this head.
